More about me

Alison Gilliland

Why I got involved in politics

Politically, I joined the Labour Party because it matches my values - a progressive equal society underpinned by a strong fair economy with decent jobs. With my right to have my voice heard comes the responsibility of representing the voices of others and striving a better fairer Ireland.

My priorities

At a local level my priorities are ensuring that:

  • Clean, safe, green communities,
  • Transport and traffic management that serve our everyday needs,
  • Well planned sustainable housing and local development,
  • Local recreational and sports facilities that promote community activity and inclusion,
  • Increased resources for Dublin Fire Brigade, Ambulance Service and local Gardai,
  • Support for local businesses and the creation of local employment opportunities,
  • Good communication and consultation with local residents on key issues

My background

My underpinning philosophy is one of social and economic quality where all citizens' rights are respected. I believe in actively participating in and contributing positively to our city, local communities and to national issues - walking the walk rather than just talking the talk.

Clubs and Committees

  • Alternate member to the European Committee of the Regions and sitting on the Commission for Citizenship, Governance, Institutional and External Affairs (CIVEX),
  • Chairperson DCC High Level Street Issues Group,
  • Member of DCC Dublin City Business Forum and Dublin Chamber of Commerce,
  • Member of DCC Corporate Policy Group, DCC Finance SPC, DCC Planning SPC and DCC Women’s Committee, DCC North Central Area Committee, DCC North Central Area Joint Policing Committee

Further details

My profile as is on the website is completely fine. The only discrepancy is that my current full title of Lord Mayor cannot be used so I'm described as Mayor
