Kieran Binchy – Pembroke South Dock Candidate

IMG_2457CropMy name is Kieran Binchy and I am the Fine Gael candidate in the new enlarged Pembroke South Dock area for the May 2014 local elections. I have been the Fine Gael Councillor for the South East Inner City electoral area since 2011.

The new combined electoral area covers from the Liffey to Merrion Gates, from Portobello and Christchurch to Dublin Bay. I will continue to work with passion, commitment and energy for the residents of the South East Inner City; I also look forward to working with the residents of Dublin 4 and Milltown in the new area.

About Kieran

I have a degree in Law and French from Trinity College Dublin and a Master’s degree in International Relations from Dublin City University. I trained as a barrister in Kings’ Inns.

As well as being a Councillor, I also currently work as a barrister. I have previously worked as a law lecturer in DIT Aungier Street and as a Parliamentary Assistant to Lucinda Creighton TD in Leinster House. Before working in law and politics, I spent time studying in France and working in tourism in Morocco and in Cuba, where I lived for three years.

A resident of Windmill Lane in the South Docklands, I am originally from Charleville in Co. Cork. I have lived in France, Morocco, Cuba and Canada, but am happy to now call Dublin home.

I am a member of the Traffic and Transport Policy Committee and the Housing, Social and Community Affairs Policy Committee on Dublin City Council. I sit on the board of directors of the Hugh Lane Gallery and the Temple Bar Cultural Trust, and also on the board of the Ringsend Community Services Forum.

I work with Eoghan Murphy TD, and Senator Catherine Noone. I also work closely with Cllr. Paddy McCartan, who is also running in the new Pembroke South Dock area. I have enjoyed working with Cllr. Edie Wynne, the outgoing Fine Gael Councillor for the Pembroke/Rathmines electoral area.

Outside politics, I swim and cycle regularly. I enjoy literature, rugby and travel, but since becoming a Councillor I don’t get as much time as he would like for hobbies.
