Deirdre is a Fianna Fáil councillor and a member of Dublin City Council.
Deirdre decided to run for election in 2019, to use her professional skills to aid others. As an opinion writer in the Irish Independent, her ideas on housing and dealing with homelessness were regularly published. But she decided that being a Councillor would have more input. On 23 January 2019 the NTA Bus Corridors became a major issue in her area and all over Dublin, she has produced reports for all areas adversely impacted. She is a self-employed architectural historian, specialising in protected structure planning and she became a practicing barrister in 2016. As a mother of two grown up sons, she is well aware of dealing with parental, childcare and education issues.
