THE Social Democrats has announced that Fingal County Councillor Paul Mulville has joined the party.

Mr Mulville (34) has been a councillor representing the Swords local electoral area since he first ran in the last local elections in 2014 on three broad themes of accountability, representation and community. The party’s co-leaders Catherine Murphy TD and Roísín Shortall TD said they were delighted to welcome Paul to the Social Democrats.

He is an energetic campaigner for local issues including the need for local job stimulus measures, social and affordable housing, improved public transport and the building of Metro North,” they said in a joint statement.

Party chairperson, Sarah Jane Henelly added: “Paul brings great experience and commitment to our growing party and the Dublin Fingal branch. Along with our party colleagues, we very much look forward to working with him in growing the Social Democrats movement as a dynamic force for change in Irish society.”

Cllr Mulville described the Social Democrats as a “new and energetic party challenging the status quo and standing for progressive policies, honest politics and a strong and sustainable economy”.

"There are a great many people committed to building the party in Fingal and across the country, and having myself canvassed for the party in the last general election as a supporter, I’m delighted to be able to play a constructive role now as a member of the party which I believe has a very bright future,” he said.  

“I will continue to work to represent the people of the Portrane, Donabate, Swords and the wider local electoral area as I have done since being elected as an independent councillor in 2014."
