Hi, I’m Ray Cunningham.

I’m the Green Party candidate for Ballyfermot-Drimnagh.

I’m working to improve public spaces, tame the traffic, build more homes, and ensure our area is a welcoming, progressive part of the city.

If there’s any issue I can assist with, or if you’d like to get involved to help get a Green councillor elected in May 2024, please do get in touch.

You can reach me by email at ray.cunningham@greenparty.ie, by phone on 089 494 8486, or on Twitter or Instagram.

  • Picking litter in Walkinstown
    The Make Walkinstown Great group started at the end of the pandemic, and has been picking litter regularly since then.
