Declan Burke South Dublin Tallaght-Central

People’s Candidate for South Dublin County Council Tallaght-Central

My name is Declan Burke and I have lived in Kingswood, Tallaght for my entire life.

I am soon to be 21 years of age and will be contesting my first elections in this year’s local elections as an independent candidate.

I believe that the people are the most important thing about politics and I am committed to serving the people of Tallaght with pride and determination

I am committed to bringing a range of new motions before the council and committed to change in the community.

I am the people’s candidate. I have signed the ‘People’s Contract’ which ensures that I am committed to direct democracy of the people.

For every motion that comes before me as an elected representative, I pledge to canvas the people and hear their views and vote in accordance with their views.

This is real democracy.

I attended primary school in St Killian’s in Kingswood and Secondary School in Templeogue College.

I am currently a student at Griffith College in Dublin and I am due to be awarded a Level 8 Honours degree in Journalism this October.
