Heartiest congratulations to Oisín Quinn, class of 1986, who was elected as the 344th Lord Mayor of Dublin. We wish him well for his term in office which in his own words focuses on promotion of Dublin as a family friendly European gateway for business that welcomes all.

Dublin City Councillor Oisín Quinn is to take on the mantle as Dublin City’s 344th Lord Mayor. A practising barrister since 1992, Quinn was appointed as a senior counsel in the Law Library in 2008. He was elected to Dublin City Council in 2004 and re-elected in 2009 as a Labour Party representative.

"I am honoured to have been elected by my colleagues on Dublin City Council to the role of Lord Mayor, representing the citizens of this wonderful city," said Quinn today. "During my term of office I will strive to ensure that the role is not merely a symbolic one but one that will act as a driver for positive change in the city." He said his main objectives as Lord Mayor of the city will be to promote Dublin as a gateway to Europe for business, as a city that embraces diversity and as a city that is willing to invest in its citizens.

"I will work tirelessly to achieve these objectives over the next 12 months and I look forward to engaging with the Dublin Chamber of Commerce during my term of office," added Quinn.
