Paul Clarke lives in Artane, a community in which he has resided his whole life. Son of a cast metal printer and a tailoress, Paul was raised in a hard-working Irish family from the beginning.
He understands the issues that face the people of Dublin Bay North. Over the years, he has been involved in many issues related to the rights of the people, their liberty and promoting justice. Because he has been involved in this work for so long and has seen first hand the problems Dublin’s residents face, Paul recognises the need for a new political system, one that promotes the wellbeing of society as a whole.
Paul’s mission is to cultivate a forum for local people’s involvement in decision-making under the provisions of article 28A of Bunreacht na hÉireann, which calls for “a form for the democratic representation of local communities.” To that end, Paul ran as an Independent candidate for the Dublin City Council in 2014 in the Beaumont/Donaghmede ward.
Paul has worked in numerous technology-related positions over the years, and his career has focused on driving innovation and growing the technology industry in Ireland. Currently, Paul serves as a Business Development manager at Webify.com, one of the fastest-growing Web Development firms in the market. His interests outside of work and politics include hiking and travel, photography, Irish history and Gaelic Feinechus--ancient laws of Ireland. If you see Paul on the campaign trail, take him up on a game of 8 ball pool, another of his favorite pastimes.
