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.

    This morning I was at the Cherry Orchard Community Garden, for a talk on Planning your Winter Vegetable Growing, organised by Dublin Community Growers. I’m a terrible gardener. I put in short bursts of activity, then do nothing for weeks. But the amazing thing is, despite my neglect, things still grow. Put a seed in …
  • Liffey Cycle Route
    The Dublin Cycling Campaign recently held their first Liffey Cycle Route protest since early 2020. The route has been proposed, opposed, planned, and sent back to planners, many times over the last ten years.
