Cllr Peter O'Brien

Thank you for taking time to visit my profile page.

I have lived all my life in the Dublin Rathdown area. I attended St Olaf’s NS (Balally), Oatlands College (Stillorgan) and Dundrum College of Further Education. I have a BA in Human Resources Management & Accountancy from the National College of Ireland.

I am a full time community worker with Southside Partnership and more recently I was appointed as a Peace Commissioner in the County of Dublin and within the counties

My goals are:

Support Local Businesses

  • Getting people back to work and supporting initiatives that will encourage local employment and support local businesses.
  • Supporting improvements in cycling facilities and an integrated and effective public transport system for all.

Smarter Planning for the Area

  • Ensure that planning decisions are community based and in the best interests of our local area.
  • Supporting local organisations and initiatives and ensuring that community involvement in local planning, policing and services is at the heart of the Council.

Youth Empowerment

  • Surpport and protect Youth Facilities to help tackle anti-social behaviour in our communities.
  • Protect and promote recreational amenities and play areas.

I am passionate about our local community - particularly working with young people. I believe the greatest way to change things is to get involved and that is why I ran for election.

I want to ensure that there are facilities and services available to all people in our area. I have been an adult volunteer in Balally Scouts for 12 years and I see daily the benefits of youth empowerment.

I have been involved in a number of different community groups:

  • Group Leader of the 137th Balally Scout Group
  • Chairperson of Glencullen Dundrum Musical & Dramatic Society
  • First President of Union of Secondary School Students
  • Served on the Board of Management of Dundrum College of Further Education
  • Member of Naomh Olaf GAA Club
  • Member of De La Salle Palmerston FC

If you have any questions, comments or would like to discuss local issues please do not hesitate to contact me.
