Today on Shut the Front Door we are delighted to be joined by Mary Lou McDonald TD, Leader of Sinn Féin and TD for the Dublin Central constituency, something she is most proud of. She has a strong reputation for hard work and championing the needs of her constituency both locally and nationally.
Educated in Trinity College, Dublin, the University of Limerick and Dublin City University she studied English Literature, European Integration Studies and Human Resource Management. She previously worked as a consultant for the Irish Productivity Centre, a researcher for the Institute of European Affairs and a trainer in the trade union sponsored Partnership Unit of the Educational and Training Services Trust.
Following Micheál Martin’s appointment as Taoiseach in June 2020, after the formation of a Fianna Fáil, Green Party and Fine Gael coalition, Mary Lou became the first-ever woman to occupy the position as Leader of the Opposition.
Married to Martin and mother to Iseult and Gerard, Deputy Mary Lou, thank you so much for taking the time to chat to me about all things home …
