Local Election Candidate Questionnaire 2024

Updated: 6 days ago

As the Dublin local elections approach, we have asked all* candidates to answer questions on some of the most important topics to Dublin Commuter Coalition members.


The questions put to candidates were:

  1. What are your current primary modes of transportation?

  2. Will you support introducing camera enforcement of bus lanes, cycle lanes, red lights, footpath parking, etc. to tackle the widespread lawbreaking and dangerous driving on our roads?

  3. Will you support the implementation of the proposed Bus Connects Core Bus Corridors, even when it requires reallocating space from private cars to provide infrastructure for bus users, cyclists and pedestrians?

  4. Are you aware of the hierarchy of road users (DMURS; Article 2.2.2), and will you commit to applying it wherever possible?

  5. How much do you agree with the statement "Bus lanes should be 24/7 to ease congestion, especially for workers who commute by bus in the evenings and on Sundays"?

  6. The RSA’s Vision Zero Plan aims for a 34% reduction in road deaths in 2024 from the previous year. Do you support the implementation of 30kph default speeds in urban areas to make our roads and streets safer?

  7. Do you support the GDA Cycle Network Plan (2022 Revision) and will you commit to its implementation?

  8. Are you aware of the UN Convention of Human Rights for People with Disabilities, and will you uphold the principles of accessibility when voting on, and submitting amendments to infrastructure projects?

  9. Do you support the implementation of the Dublin City Centre Transport Plan in Full?


Scroll down to see the candidates' responses to Questions 1-4. Due to the length of the page, we have had to split the responses into two pages - click here for the responses to Questions 5-9.

2. Will you support introducing camera enforcement of bus lanes, cycle lanes, red lights, footpath parking, etc. to tackle the widespread lawbreaking and dangerous driving on our roads?

Dublin City Council


Josh O’Rourke (Sinn Féin), Dublin City Council: Artane / Whitehall

Yes, I fully support the use of technology for enforcement of road traffic laws. However, technology should not completely replace road traffic patrols from An Garda Síochana. 

Niamh Mongey (Social Democrats), Dublin City Council: Ballyfermot - Drimnagh 

Yes, I believe serious penalties for phone use while driving need to be incurred, this needs to be monitored with cameras and proper policing. Our roads have never been busier, we need all our citizens to become more accountable as they travel through the city. 

Patrick Dempsey (Labour), Dublin City Council: Ballyfermot Drimnagh

Yes. This is commonplace in many cities. It will impact the few who break laws and treat the red light as a suggestion, while benefiting the many through additional enforcement and prevention. But I think the problem also lies with gardai to ensure an active policing enforcement. 

Ray Cunningham (Green Party), Dublin City Council: Ballyfermot-Drimnagh

Yes, absolutely. Garda enforcement of these problems is infrequent, at best, they are not seen as priority issues. Camera enforcement is 24/7 and does not require garda time. I would also support the creation of a portal for uploading camera footage of dangerous driving, footpath parking etc in places that don't have fixed cameras.

Arnold Guo (Fine Gael), Dublin City Council: Ballymun-Finglas

I fully support the introduction of camera enforcement in areas where frequent violations occur. I also believe that DCC should run a consultation for vulnerable road users and pedestrians to point out black spots where cameras/infrastructure modifications are needed


John Lonergan (Labour), Dublin City Council: Ballymun-Finglas

Yes

Cllr Cat O'Driscoll (Social Democrats), Dublin City Council: Cabra Glasnevin

Yes, there are not enough resources in parking enforcement or the Gardaí to tackle this so automated technology is a good approach. 

Feljin Jose (Green Party), Dublin City Council: Cabra-Glasnevin

Yes, I will continue to push for camera based enforcement of road traffic offences to increase road safety and reduce congestion.

Garrett Greene (The Workers’ Party), Dublin City Council: Cabra-Glasnevin

Yes, I support it for the specific purpose of traffic enforcement. However we should be careful to limit the use to these purposes and not increase general purpose surveillance.

Bernard Mulvany (People Before Profit-Solidarity), Dublin City Council: Clontarf

Yes

Catherine Stocker (Social Democrats), Dublin City Council: Clontarf LEA

Yes, looking forward to it.


I am also fighting at the moment to have the parking contract for DCC (which is due for renewal in July 2025) include provision for specific staff for each administrative area who report back regularly to the area committees. At present most enforcement happens within a 1KM radius of Baggot Street leading to general lawlessness in areas outside the city core. We need system change to address this. 

Donna Cooney  (Green Party), Dublin City Council: Clontarf LEA 

Yes 

Tamara Kearns (Sinn Féin), Dublin City Council: Donaghmeade / Kilbarrack

The use of technology in enforcement of road traffic laws has been welcomed by Sinn Féin, however we have been clear that tech cannot and should not replace the work of roads policing units. While technology has its place, particularly when combating red-light-breaking and associated behaviours, it must be undertaken in such a way that it does not infringe on the right to privacy that people should expect when going about their day in the city centre or it’s environs.


Janet Horner (Green Party), Dublin City Council: Dublin's North Inner City

Yes

Cllr. Fiona Connelly (Labour), Dublin City Council: Kimmage Rathmines

Yes - I'm in favour of using technology to tackle those issues and improve safety.

Cllr. Pat Dunne (Independents 4 Change), Dublin City Council: Kimmage Rathmines

Total support I have previously lobbied both the NTA and Dublin City Council. The technology is there we should use it.

Shay L'Estrange  (People Before Profit-Solidarity), Dublin City Council: Kimmage Rathmines

We already have an excessive amount of surveillance in our society, so I cannot agree with this measure.

Carolyn Moore (Green Party), Dublin City Council: Kimmage Rathmines

Yes

Eoin Hayes (Social Democrats), Dublin City Council: Kimmage-Rathmines

You can count on it

Alan Whelan (Sinn Féin), Dublin City Council: North Inner City

I would absolutely welcome the use of technology to detect incidences of breaking red lights and illegal/improper use of bus and cycle lanes. I would be cautious however that this technology is not seen as a replacement for the work of the roads policing units. I do not believe we should become a 'camera surveillance' society, and people are still entitled to expect their right to privacy not to be infringed upon when going about their daily business.   

Hazel Chu (Green Party), Dublin City Council: Pembroke

Yes

Dermot Lacey (Labour), Dublin City Council: Pembroke

The answer is 95% yes to all - there are a tiny number of roads where we have to find ways to deal with residents access and cars.

Darragh Moriarty (Labour), Dublin City Council: South West Inner City

Yes

Jen Cummins (Social Democrats), Dublin City Council: South West Inner City

Yes

Michael Pidgeon (Green Party), Dublin City Council: South West Inner City

Yes.

Zoe Obeimhen (Independent), Dublin City Council: South West Inner City, Liberties, Tenters, Inchicore, Kilmainham, Islandbridge, Rialto

Yes 

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council


Dan Carson (Fine Gael), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council: Blackrock

Yes

Conor Dowling (Green Party), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council: Blackrock

Yes

Martha Fanning (Labour), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council: Blackrock

Yes, for the above, and for cycle lane parking

Callie Nic Rállaigh (Sinn Féin), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council: Blackrock

Yes

Eoin O'Driscoll (Fine Gael), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council: Dundrum

Yes

Robert Jones (Green Party), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council: Dundrum

Yes

Shay Brennan (Fianna Fáil), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council: Dundrum

Yes

Fiona Murray (Fianna Fáil), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council: Dundrum LEA

Yes 

Mary Carroll (Fine Gael), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council: Dún Laoghaire

Yes

Cllr. Tom Kivlehan (Green Party), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council: Dún Laoghaire

Yes

Oisín O'Connor  (Green Party), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council: Glencullen-Sandyford

Yes. I have had motions down on the council agenda to put DLR forward as a leader in red light cameras, have formed and chaired a Parking Sub-Committee which has recommended DLR parking enforcement switch to more focus on illegal parking especially footpath parking. And I have a track record of calling for these things for years, even before I became a councillor.

Roland Kennedy (Sinn Féin), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council: Killarney/Ballybrack ward

Yes

John Hurley (Social Democrats), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council: Stillorgan

Yes

Fingal County Council


Karen Power (Green Party), Fingal County Council: Balbriggan

Yes

Louise Kavanagh (Sinn Féin), Fingal County Council: Blanchardstown/Mulhuddart

Yes. The technology is welcomed, and important to support Gardaí in combating lawbreaking, but it cannot and should not be used to replace the work of the road policing unit.


The technology should also not infringe on the right to privacy that people should expect when going about their day.

Robbie Loughlin (Aontú), Fingal County Council: Blanchardstown/Mulhuddart

Yes

Angela Donnelly (Sinn Féin), Fingal County Council: Ongar LEA

I think the roads policing units should be our primary source of enforcement however there is a place for cameras, particularly when combating red-light-breaking and associated behaviours. whilst ensuring people's right to privacy is protected.

Corina Johnston  (Labour), Fingal County Council: Rush Lusk 

Yes 

Suzanne Young (Green Party), Fingal County Council: Rush/Lusk

Yes absolutely, we need to make our roads safer if we are to allow children to walk and cycle to school safely and generally encourage active travel in our communities.

Adrian Henchy (Fianna Fáil), Fingal County Council: Rush-Lusk LEA

Yes. 

Brigid Manton (Fianna Fáil), Fingal County Council: Swords

Of course but implementing these is the job of the Gardai. 

Kildare County Council


Rachael Wall (Social Democrats), Kildare County Council: Athy LEA

Yes

David Monaghan (Sinn Féin), Kildare County Council: Celbridge LEA

The use of technology in enforcement of road traffic laws has been welcomed by Sinn Féin, however we have been clear that tech cannot and should not replace the work of roads policing units. While technology has its place, particularly when combating red-light-breaking and associated behaviours, it must be undertaken in such a way that it does not infringe on the right to privacy that people should expect when going about their day in the city centre or it’s environs.



William Durkan (Fine Gael), Kildare County Council: Clane

Yes - Enforcement is key to increase road safety and functionality for all road users. It is also important that any camera enforcement initiatives respect the privacy of individuals in their day-to-day lives. 

Joan O Boyle (Sinn Féin), Kildare County Council: Leixlip

Yes

Evelyn Gaynor (Sinn Féin), Kildare County Council: Maynooth

The use of technology in enforcement of road traffic laws has been welcomed by Sinn Féin, however we have been clear that tech cannot and should not replace the work of roads policing units. While technology has its place, particularly when combating red-light-breaking and associated behaviours, it must be undertaken in such a way that it does not infringe on the right to privacy that people should expect when going about their day in the city centre or it’s environs.

Peter Melrose (Social Democrats), Kildare County Council: Maynooth

No. I think there should be investment in Gardaí resourcing and traffic wardens. Widespread installation of cameras in public spaces creates more problems than it solves, in my opinion. However, red light cameras is something I would consider as I think it is a widespread and dangerous problem. 

Bill Clear (Social Democrats), Kildare County Council: Naas md

Yes

James Garvin (Independent), Kildare County Council: Newbridge LEA

Yes

Ronan Maher (Green Party), Kildare County Council: Newbridge LEA

Yes

Meath County Council


Conor Tormey (Fianna Fáil), Meath County Council: Ashbourne

Yes

South Dublin County Council


Cllr Eoin Ó Broin (Social Democrats), South Dublin County Council: Clondalkin

Sure. It is not something that SDCC has proposed but sure.

Laura Donaghy (Green Party), South Dublin County Council: Clondalkin

Yes

Sarah Adedeji (Fine Gael), South Dublin County Council: Clondalkin

Yes

Josh Ellul  (Labour), South Dublin County Council: Clondalkin 

Yes

Lynn Tierney (Social Democrats), South Dublin County Council: Clondalkin LEA incl. Saggart Rathcoole Newcaste Brittas

Yes - I believe poor enforcement has a direct link to levels of dangerous driving on the roads. RTAs can have life altering consequences and road safety is paramount. 

Róisín Mannion (Sinn Féin), South Dublin County Council: Firhouse Bohernabreena

Yes - the use of technology in enforcement of road traffic laws has been welcomed by Sinn Féin, however we have been clear that tech cannot and should not replace the work of roads policing units. While technology has its place, particularly when combating red-light-breaking and associated behaviours, it must be undertaken in such a way that it does not infringe on the right to privacy that people should expect when going about their day in the city centre or it’s environs.

Cllr Lyn Hagin Meade (Green Party), South Dublin County Council: Firhouse Bohernabreena 

Yes

Stephen Nolan (Social Democrats), South Dublin County Council: Lican

Yes

Derren Ó Brádaigh  (Sinn Féin), South Dublin County Council: Lucan

Yes

Mark Kerins (People Before Profit-Solidarity), South Dublin County Council: Lucan

Yes

Madeleine Johansson (People Before Profit-Solidarity), South Dublin County Council: Palmerstown-Fonthill

Yes

Ciarán Ahern (Labour), South Dublin County Council: Rathfarnham Templeogue

Yes, it’s long overdue.

Mark Lynch (Green Party), South Dublin County Council: Rathfarnham Templeogue

Yes

Cllr Justin Sinnott (Social Democrats), South Dublin County Council: Rathfarnham Templeogue Greenhills

Yes

Conor Kelly (People Before Profit-Solidarity), South Dublin County Council: Rathfarnham-Templeogue

Yes but maintaining a balance between enforcement and privacy safeguards is important.

Jess Spear (People Before Profit-Solidarity), South Dublin County Council: Tallaght Central

Yes. It's incredibly distressing to have to walk onto the road with your baby, as I have had to do because someone has parked on the footpath. The same goes for cycle lanes. Having to navigate around vans and cars parked in the cycle lane puts cyclists in danger as many drivers are hesitant to slow down and allow you to go out and back in the cycle lane. This is the main reason why I won't cycle with my child. I also see drivers running red lights every single day.



I think it is important however that these cameras only be used for traffic enforcement and not to widen the development of a surveillance state.

Vanessa Mulhall (Green Party), South Dublin County Council: Tallaght Central 

Yes I wuold this enforcemnt is needed.

Wicklow County Council


Laurie Kearon (Fine Gael), Wicklow County Council: Arklow LEA

yes

Connor Byrne (Sinn Féin), Wicklow County Council: Baltinglass

Yes

John Mullen (Fianna Fáil), Wicklow County Council: Baltinglass MD

Yes

Anne Ferris (Labour), Wicklow County Council: Bray East

Yes

Caroline Winstanley (Social Democrats), Wicklow County Council: Bray West LEA

Yes.  Please support the Disability Federation of Ireland campaign "Make Way Day"

Stephen Stokes (Independent), Wicklow County Council: Greystones Municipal District

Yes

John J Larkin (Independent), Wicklow County Council: Wicklow Municipal District

Yes

3. Will you support the implementation of the proposed Bus Connects Core Bus Corridors, even when it requires reallocating space from private cars to provide infrastructure for bus users, cyclists and pedestrians?


Dublin City Council


Josh O’Rourke (Sinn Féin), Dublin City Council: Artane / Whitehall

Yes, although the roll out of bus connects across the city has been slower than anticipated. It is vital that communities are consulted in relation to bus connects and what routes will work best for users of public transport. 

Niamh Mongey (Social Democrats), Dublin City Council: Ballyfermot - Drimnagh 

This is huge point of contention for residents in the Ballyfermot - Drimnagh area - the Bus Connects corridors mean a lot of change for people and parking in these areas is already at capacity - there is no effective parking infrastructure, and some of the corridors are being implemented without considering all members of the community, while overall I do support active travel, there are some issues that I wish to challenge, if we are reallocating space from private cars, we need to come up with proper solutions for them. 

Patrick Dempsey (Labour), Dublin City Council: Ballyfermot Drimnagh

Yes, active travel and public transport should take precedence. Indeed, I'd rather work with the NTA to improve schemes and implementation where schemes already receive planning permission, rather than opposing something that is already happening which will have little to no impact for the community.



I would mention though that BusConnects could be much better and would appreciate the scheme paying attention to unintended consequences. Namely, congestion in other locations on the periphery of corridor locations which could impact local communities, pedestrians, children at play, or lead to air pollution. I'd also like BusConnects to consider mature tree retention/re-planting as an important element for communities and pedestrians. Trees are good for air quality and will be needed for shading as our city manages impacts of climate change. Green space matters.



The NTA have a problem of bringing people along with them, and while some people will always oppose change, the NTA would buy people in if they explained and committed to better outreach and engagement. I see my role if elected of ensuring that the city is more sustainable and easier to get around while also ensuring that our communities are informed, immersed and brought along in the process.

Ray Cunningham (Green Party), Dublin City Council: Ballyfermot-Drimnagh

Yes. Private cars are the least efficient way of moving people. We have limited street space, so vulnerable users - pedestrians, people with disabilities, cyclists - and high-capacity users - public transport - should be the priorities.

Arnold Guo (Fine Gael), Dublin City Council: Ballymun-Finglas

I support the implementation of the core bus corridors. I do believe that in their implementation, consultation is important. Compromise is possible and key to this. For examples in areas where a travel direction of a corridor is only congested during the morning/afternoon bus gates could be restricted to those times.


John Lonergan (Labour), Dublin City Council: Ballymun-Finglas

Yes

Cllr Cat O'Driscoll (Social Democrats), Dublin City Council: Cabra Glasnevin

Yes, effective and safe public transport and active travel will help those who don't need their car to make the change. 

Feljin Jose (Green Party), Dublin City Council: Cabra-Glasnevin

Yes

Garrett Greene (The Workers’ Party), Dublin City Council: Cabra-Glasnevin

Yes, increasing frequency and reliability of public transport should be our number one priority. But it's important that the necessary increase in public transport capacity is already in place when these changes are made. There's been a tendency in Dublin to lead with measures to restrict space for cars, but wait for demand to increase before adding public transport capacity. The emphasis needs to be on making sure alternatives to driving are there first.

Bernard Mulvany (People Before Profit-Solidarity), Dublin City Council: Clontarf

Yes

Catherine Stocker (Social Democrats), Dublin City Council: Clontarf LEA

Yes.

Donna Cooney  (Green Party), Dublin City Council: Clontarf LEA 

Yes 

Tamara Kearns (Sinn Féin), Dublin City Council: Donaghmeade / Kilbarrack

While it has had its difficulties, and the rollout is proceeding at a slower pace than anticipated, Sinn Féin broadly supports the Bus Connects scheme.  It must be acknowledged that there have been difficulties where some routes have changes, and it is vital that Dublin Bus works with communities to ensure they continue to be served by public transport.  Ultimately, the more people who can be encouraged to utilise public transport for most of or all of their journey, the better for lowering our carbon output.


Janet Horner (Green Party), Dublin City Council: Dublin's North Inner City

Yes

Cllr. Fiona Connelly (Labour), Dublin City Council: Kimmage Rathmines

yes

Cllr. Pat Dunne (Independents 4 Change), Dublin City Council: Kimmage Rathmines

Yes as a bus user I support the Bus connects project.. However it needs to be monitored after implementation to ensure that unintended consequences such as using side roads as rat runs are mitigated against. .

Shay L'Estrange  (People Before Profit-Solidarity), Dublin City Council: Kimmage Rathmines

I agree and welcome the concept of busconnects however it must be accompanied by a public transport system that works, which includes free frequent public transport. This cannot follow Busconnect but needs to be part of it. 

Carolyn Moore (Green Party), Dublin City Council: Kimmage Rathmines

Yes

Eoin Hayes (Social Democrats), Dublin City Council: Kimmage-Rathmines

Yes, I support the Bus Connects programme as currently envisioned and the de-prioritisation of private cars in favour of more sustainable sources of transport. However, there are 3 issues I am concerned about: (1) the potential increase and need to mitigate traffic on roads just off-corridor (e.g. the creation of rat-runs), retaining street safety for children and pedestrians, (2) the ability for those with mobility issues (e.g. the disabled or elderly) to be able to access their local area by motor vehicle if walking, cycling, or bus services are unavailable or inappropriate, and (3) some loss of bus services in specific instances (e.g. the 15B on Bushy Park Road), which disproportionately affect the elderly.

Alan Whelan (Sinn Féin), Dublin City Council: North Inner City

I would broadly support the rollout of the Bus Connect scheme. I do however believe it is progressing at too slow a pace, and some of the routes are overly complicated. Inner and outer routes linking with existing public transport services would be better than new routes coming in and out of the city centre. 



It is vital that all communities are served by public transport. Ultimately, the more people we can get using public transport, by making it cheap, convenient and fast, the more it will free up roads for other users and reduce our carbon output. 

Hazel Chu (Green Party), Dublin City Council: Pembroke

Yes

Dermot Lacey (Labour), Dublin City Council: Pembroke

Again 95% Yes - I am committed to working to find solutions. I want the 15 minute City concept to work and will work to achieve that. The job of a Councillor is try and identify solutions to real problems

Dan Carson (Fine Gael), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council: Blackrock

Yes

Conor Dowling (Green Party), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council: Blackrock

Yes

Martha Fanning (Labour), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council: Blackrock

Yes. Bus Connects is a hugely welcome initiative, it just needs to be rolled out faster

Callie Nic Rállaigh (Sinn Féin), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council: Blackrock

If public consoltation is given and supported then yes

Eoin O'Driscoll (Fine Gael), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council: Dundrum

Yes. However, improved ongoing, effective engagement required to ensure that the bus routes serve local needs effectively and that infrastructure, particularly cycle lanes, best meets needs of all road users.

Robert Jones (Green Party), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council: Dundrum

Yes

Shay Brennan (Fianna Fáil), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council: Dundrum

Yes

Fiona Murray (Fianna Fáil), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council: Dundrum LEA

Yes

Mary Carroll (Fine Gael), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council: Dún Laoghaire

Yes

Cllr. Tom Kivlehan (Green Party), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council: Dún Laoghaire

Yes

Oisín O'Connor  (Green Party), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council: Glencullen-Sandyford

Yes. There are no Bus Connects CBCs in or near my area but I support any measures to prioritise bus users, cyclists and pedestrians over inefficient road uses.

Roland Kennedy (Sinn Féin), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council: Killarney/Ballybrack ward

I believe if there is public consultation and the public are part of the decision making process I will support them 

John Hurley (Social Democrats), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council: Stillorgan

I do not believe that the Bus Connects initiative is the answer to Dublin's transport problems. This long-overdue reform of bus routes and schedules alone is not enough. We need more light rail services and a metro line. I support improvement in public and active transport and acknowledge that road-space allocations are sometimes necessary but I will not give a blanket commitment to re-allocating space to any mode of transport.

Fingal County Council


Karen Power (Green Party), Fingal County Council: Balbriggan

Yes

Louise Kavanagh (Sinn Féin), Fingal County Council: Blanchardstown/Mulhuddart

Yes, absolutely, however it has to be acknowledged that the roll out of Bus Connects has been slow and in many areas route changes, and disappearing buses has caused difficulties within communities. The more people who are encouraged to use public transport that is effective and fit for purpose, the better for our carbon output.

Robbie Loughlin (Aontú), Fingal County Council: Blanchardstown/Mulhuddart

Yes

Angela Donnelly (Sinn Féin), Fingal County Council: Ongar LEA

The rollout of bus connects is proceeding slowly. and there have been difficulties with some route changes but I broadly support the Bus Connects plan. Consultation and buy in from the communities served by Bus Connects is vital to ensure the best service possible is delivered. The success of the Bus Connects scheme will benefit communities and our planet.

Corina Johnston  (Labour), Fingal County Council: Rush Lusk 

Yes

Suzanne Young (Green Party), Fingal County Council: Rush/Lusk

Yes, all urban areas should have safe cycling and pedestrian routes to provide people a valid choice. For our reliability of our bus service will only improve if they can move freely on the roads rather than being delayed due to congestion. Reliability is key to encouraging people to use public transport especially at peak times. The Bus corridors are an important part of the strategy to improve the service and give priority to buses over cars on our roads.

Adrian Henchy (Fianna Fáil), Fingal County Council: Rush-Lusk LEA

Yes

Brigid Manton (Fianna Fáil), Fingal County Council: Swords

Yes

Kildare County Council


Rachael Wall (Social Democrats), Kildare County Council: Athy LEA

Yes

David Monaghan (Sinn Féin), Kildare County Council: Celbridge LEA

While it has had its difficulties, and the rollout is proceeding at a slower pace than anticipated, Sinn Féin broadly supports the Bus Connects scheme.  It must be acknowledged that there have been difficulties where some routes have changes, and it is vital that Dublin Bus works with communities to ensure they continue to be served by public transport.  Ultimately, the more people who can be encouraged to utilise public transport for most of or all of their journey, the better for lowering our carbon output.


William Durkan (Fine Gael), Kildare County Council: Clane

Yes - For people in Kildare that regularly commute to the Dublin region, a stronger transport system with better integration across all modes is a key priority. A stronger public transport system will improve the commuting experience for all individuals, including car users. 

Joan O Boyle (Sinn Féin), Kildare County Council: Leixlip

Yes

Evelyn Gaynor (Sinn Féin), Kildare County Council: Maynooth

While it has had its difficulties, and the rollout is proceeding at a slower pace than anticipated, Sinn Féin broadly supports the Bus Connects scheme. It must be acknowledged that there have been difficulties where some routes have changes, and it is vital that Dublin Bus works with communities to ensure they continue to be served by public transport. Ultimately, the more people who can be encouraged to utilise public transport for most of or all of their journey, the better for lowering our carbon output.

South Dublin County Council


Cllr Eoin Ó Broin (Social Democrats), South Dublin County Council: Clondalkin

Yes I have already done so.

Laura Donaghy (Green Party), South Dublin County Council: Clondalkin

Yes

Yes

Josh Ellul  (Labour), South Dublin County Council: Clondalkin 

Yes

Lynn Tierney (Social Democrats), South Dublin County Council: Clondalkin LEA incl. Saggart Rathcoole Newcaste Brittas

Yes in principle I will support. I would also highlight that more frequent and reliable bus services are required to be in place in order to really provide a public transport model that further encourages reduction of car usage

Róisín Mannion (Sinn Féin), South Dublin County Council: Firhouse Bohernabreena

I broadly support the Bus Connects scheme.  It must be acknowledged that there have been difficulties where some routes have changes, and it is vital that Dublin Bus works with communities to ensure they continue to be served by public transport.  Ultimately, the more people who can be encouraged to utilise public transport for most of or all of their journey, the better for lowering our carbon output.

Mark Kerins (People Before Profit-Solidarity), South Dublin County Council: Lucan

Yes

Madeleine Johansson (People Before Profit-Solidarity), South Dublin County Council: Palmerstown-Fonthill

I support the majority of the projects except for some issues such as removal of bus stops. 

Ciarán Ahern (Labour), South Dublin County Council: Rathfarnham Templeogue

Yes. 

Mark Lynch (Green Party), South Dublin County Council: Rathfarnham Templeogue

Yes

Cllr Justin Sinnott (Social Democrats), South Dublin County Council: Rathfarnham Templeogue Greenhills

Yes if it is on the basis of reallocating road space however I would not support the destruction of trees, parks and playgrounds for any bus corridor unless it is proven to make a significant difference. The proposal to take part of Rathfarnham Castle Park and the wooded area playground is something I will not support. 

Conor Kelly (People Before Profit-Solidarity), South Dublin County Council: Rathfarnham-Templeogue

Yes. & Bus Connects needs to be accompanied by a massive improvement & investment in our public transport. 

Jess Spear (People Before Profit-Solidarity), South Dublin County Council: Tallaght Central

Yes, for two main reasons: 1) to protect vulnerable road users and 2) to rapidly reduce transport emissions, which are largely from private cars. As someone who walks, cycles, uses public transport and also drives a car, I understand the dangers for vulnerable road users and also the frustrations of a car driver. At first, it will be (and has been) frustrating for drivers who are used to having more parking and road space. However, there is no time to lose to build the infrastructure.

Vanessa Mulhall (Green Party), South Dublin County Council: Tallaght Central 

Yes I would

Wicklow County Council


Laurie Kearon (Fine Gael), Wicklow County Council: Arklow LEA

yes

Yes

John Mullen (Fianna Fáil), Wicklow County Council: Baltinglass MD

Yes

Anne Ferris (Labour), Wicklow County Council: Bray East

Yes

Caroline Winstanley (Social Democrats), Wicklow County Council: Bray West LEA

Yes- Bus Connects will actually bring more bus options to parts of my LEA, which will hopefully encourage people to switch to more sustainable forms of transport.  We just have to ensure that traffic does not get redirected to other areas, pushing the problem else where and creating rat runs.

Stephen Stokes (Independent), Wicklow County Council: Greystones Municipal District

Yes

John J Larkin (Independent), Wicklow County Council: Wicklow Municipal District

Yes


4. Are you aware of the hierarchy of road users (DMURS; Article 2.2.2), and will you commit to applying it wherever possible?

Dublin City Council


Josh O’Rourke (Sinn Féin), Dublin City Council: Artane / Whitehall

Yes, I commit to applying and upholding the principals where it is practicable when roads are undergoing development or redesign. 

Niamh Mongey (Social Democrats), Dublin City Council: Ballyfermot - Drimnagh 

I believe pedestrians should be the most protected road users and will commit to this wherever possible.

Patrick Dempsey (Labour), Dublin City Council: Ballyfermot Drimnagh

Not until now, but I agree with it.

Ray Cunningham (Green Party), Dublin City Council: Ballyfermot-Drimnagh

Yes. Road user safety is more important than traffic speed.

Arnold Guo (Fine Gael), Dublin City Council: Ballymun-Finglas

Yes, the safety of vulnerable road users takes priority over all other elements. Especially being a father, I want my child to be able to walk or cycle to school without be concerned for their safety.


John Lonergan (Labour), Dublin City Council: Ballymun-Finglas

Yes

Cllr Cat O'Driscoll (Social Democrats), Dublin City Council: Cabra Glasnevin

Pedestrians are my priority and within that group we must cater for people pushing buggies, using walking aids and the visually impaired. Pathways and crossing that work well for them work well for us all. 

Feljin Jose (Green Party), Dublin City Council: Cabra-Glasnevin

Yes and Yes

Garrett Greene (The Workers’ Party), Dublin City Council: Cabra-Glasnevin

Yes I'm aware of it and I would commit to applying it in most cases. In some instances I think there is a case for prioritising buses over cyclists, e.g. on major radial routes which carry large volumes of bus traffic, where there may be parallel alternative routes for cycling.

Bernard Mulvany (People Before Profit-Solidarity), Dublin City Council: Clontarf

Yes I am aware.

Catherine Stocker (Social Democrats), Dublin City Council: Clontarf LEA

Yes absolutely.

Donna Cooney  (Green Party), Dublin City Council: Clontarf LEA 

Yes 

Tamara Kearns (Sinn Féin), Dublin City Council: Donaghmeade / Kilbarrack

Yes

Eoin Hayes (Social Democrats), Dublin City Council: Kimmage-Rathmines

Yes and yes

Alan Whelan (Sinn Féin), Dublin City Council: North Inner City

I am aware of the hierarchy of road users. It is something I and our other party members would be very cognisant of when it comes to making decisions at council level. I believe footpaths and cycle lanes are currently not up to a high enough quality, or level of safety, to encourage more people to use them as an alternative to using their car. I would commit to upholding these principles as much as is practically possible. 

Hazel Chu (Green Party), Dublin City Council: Pembroke

Yes

Dermot Lacey (Labour), Dublin City Council: Pembroke

I do try and apply it

Darragh Moriarty (Labour), Dublin City Council: South West Inner City

I'm aware of it now after looking it up seeing this question - and yes

I am not aware of them. Think education on this would be really helpful for people, maybe make the roads safer.

Yes.

Yes

Oisín O'Connor  (Green Party), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council: Glencullen-Sandyford

Yes. As an example, I have secured policy changes to bring in continuous footpaths to  existing side road junction redesigns and new developments. I have always vociferously supported road design changes that follow DMURS, despite opposition.

Corina Johnston  (Labour), Fingal County Council: Rush Lusk 

Yes 

Suzanne Young (Green Party), Fingal County Council: Rush/Lusk

I am familiar with the DMURS and completely in favour of all it's aims. I am very much committed to applying it's recommendations even when it might be unpopular. I believe that safe walkable streets create a much better community space than one that is built for cars.

Adrian Henchy (Fianna Fáil), Fingal County Council: Rush-Lusk LEA

Yes

Brigid Manton (Fianna Fáil), Fingal County Council: Swords
