Welcome to the Lord Mayor of Dublin website
|This website gives information on the Lord Mayor of Dublin - first citizen of the city of Dublin. |
The Lord Mayor is elected by the City Councillors at the Annual Meeting of the City Council which is held in City Hall.
The current Lord Mayor is Oisín Quinn. He was elected on Monday 24th June 2013 and is the 344th Lord Mayor of Dublin.
|Please see below a report on the deliberations and conclusions of the forum which was established from members of the four local authorities in the Dublin Metropolitan area.|
The report was prepared in line with the requirements contained in section 59 of the Local Government Bill 2013. The forum met on 5 occasions between July and December this year and we conducted extensive public consultation during September and October.
The report was sent to Minister Phil Hogan in December 2013.
At their meeting on 24th March 2014, Dublin City Council voted to put the question of whether to have a Directly Elected Mayor for Dublin to the people via a plebiscite in May. The other three Dublin Authorities will vote on 31st March 2014. All four Dublin Local Authorities must agree to put the question to the people.
|I presented the Honorary Freedom of the City of Dublin to Fr. Peter McVerry SJ & Brian O'Driscoll on 22nd March 2014. Fr. Peter has campaigned for 40 years for Dublin's young homeless people and Brian is one of Ireland's greatest ever rugby players.|
Brian and Peter are from different generations but they are both inspirational leaders. I was delighted they agreed to accept this great honour. They are and will continue to be great ambassadors for Dublin.
|When I commenced my term as Lord Mayor in late June, I established a Task Force to tackle the problem of vacant lands in the city centre. We have made a submission to government to enable us to impose a levy on such lands.|
