Dear Neighbour... 

I’m Lorraine Hall and I’m new to local politics. I’m running for Fine Gael in the Local Election and I’m asking you for your vote. Yes, it’s a big thing to ask for and I hope you’ll consider me.

I'm originally from Cootehill in Co. Cavan and am living with my partner Conall on the Upper Glenageary Road. Dún Laoghaire is home. Like you, I love our area. Now, I'm hoping you'll give me the chance to work for our community so we can enjoy a thriving town centre, place a much greater emphasis on protecting our environment, be guaranteed clean, well-kept footpaths and roads, and feel safe and secure when we're out and about.

I work in Ibec so I know the challenges and opportunities we face in local business and the economy. But as a young woman with bills to pay and very active in the local community, I also know that a good life is about more than economics. It’s about community, kindness, how we look after each other and mind the environment we share. These are the values that make life worth living and that as your councillor, I would work to highlight and foster in our community.

Before Ibec, I worked as a Special Adviser for the Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Heather Humphreys TD, a Press Adviser for the Minister for Justice and Defence, Alan Shatter TD, and a Policy and Research Officer for former Taoiseach, Enda Kenny TD. I have a lot of experience dealing with policy and legislation and helping people with issues of concern.  


If I sound like somebody who could represent you and your family well, please vote for me. I’ll make sure your vote counts. For now, if you’d like to get involved and campaign with me, I’d be delighted. You can get me on

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I look forward to meeting you on the canvass.


Best wishes, 

Lorraine Hall
