UCD Alumna Hazel Chu elected Lord Mayor of Dublin


UCD alumna and Green Party councillor Hazel Chu has been elected the 352nd Lord Mayor of Dublin.

Ms Chu studied history and politics at UCD before going on to train as a Barrister at the King’s Inn. She later completed a Masters in Marketing Practice at UCD Smurfit.

Speaking after her election, Ms Chu said she would use the position to have “an open and frank conversation on the topic of racism and gender inequality.”

We wish Ms Chu every success in the role.
