Meet Lynn

I’m Lynn Tierney, the Social Democrats Local Election Candidate for Clondalkin.

As a resident of Saggart, I am passionate about advocating for the needs of the village communities in the Clondalkin LEA. Over the years, my active involvement in many community-driven projects has allowed me to make a meaningful impact.

From serving as the Chairperson of the Saggart Village Residents Association, to co-founding the Tidytowns Committee and the Annual Christmas Event, my contributions have resulted in a cleaner, more vibrant environment with a strong sense of community connection.

I have successfully campaigned to secure community facilities, of note, was my role in working with other local volunteers and petitioning South Dublin County Council to provide a community centre for Saggart. I was a Director for the community centre board for 3 years from 2019, working with others to bring the community centre to building stage. The centre is now due to open later in 2023.

I have successfully secured funding for community groups and ensure that South Dublin County Council responds to the needs of residents.

I am passionate about ensuring planning meets the needs of a growing community, to include sufficient community and education facilities, safe roads and improved public transport. I have a keen understanding of how local participation and active citizenship can positively impact on the issues that matter in villages.

My professional background in disability services, focused on delivering personalised supports to individuals of all ages with disabilities has driven my passion for inclusive, accessible and equal opportunities for all community members.

With a proven record of accomplishments and a career centred around empathy and support, I am dedicated to effectively representing your interests. Together, we can build the strengths of our area and overcome challenges, ensuring a thriving and inclusive future for everyone. Together with Councillor Eoin Ó Broin, we make up your Social Democrats Team for the Clondalkin LEA.
