The Green Party’s Limerick branch is delighted to confirm that Councillor Saša Novak Uí Chonchúir will be their candidate in next summer’s local elections in Limerick City North. The sitting Green Party councillor took over the seat vacated by Brian Leddin when he was elected to the Dáil in 2020.

Saša is married to Eoin and lives in Mayorstone with their two young boys. Originally from Slovenia, she has been living in Limerick for the last 16 years. Saša is the chair of the Travel and Transportation Strategic Policy Committee in Limerick Council and has been passionately advocating for improved public transport, cycle lanes and footpaths in Limerick.

Saša can be seen cycling around Limerick on her electric bike any day of the year. She said: “Limerick is a compact city. We can create vibrant communities and I think we need  to focus on building high quality and affordable housing around a network of cycle lanes, pedestrian infrastructure and excellent public transport links close to local services, shops and schools. Over the last 3 years we have seen great strides being made especially in the area of active travel, namely the development of new cycle lanes and improvements to footpaths. This is in no small part due to having the Green Party in government and having a strong Green voice on Local Councils. In the next 5 years I see Limerick as the leader of sustainable development based on sustainable transport, and green energy on the Shannon Estuary.” 

Saša says her priorities on the council are making our streets safer for walking, improving cycling infrastructure, delivering more new and affordable homes, and expanding green space, to bring more nature into our city and improve the quality of life of everyone in Limerick. If elected next summer, she will continue working with the communities to deliver on those goals.
