Representing Dublin in Europe



Barry Andrews' Priorities

Barry Andrews believes in the principles on which the EU was founded and stands by the liberal, democratic values that have brought peace to Europe and actual social and economic progress to Ireland and Dublin over the last four decades.


‘Housing for All’ is Ireland’s most ambitious housing policy ever, aiming to increase the supply of new homes to an average minimum of 33,000 annually by 2030. Barry is committed to helping Ireland achieve this aim.


Cost of living

The current cost of living crisis has placed an extra burden on Irish families. By focusing on minimising the effects on households through targeted government spending and tax reliefs, Barry is seeking effective and practical methods to manage issues surrounding the cost-of-living crisis.


Barry is committed to creating a functional migration and asylum policy grounded in humanity, solidarity and respect for human rights. The number one priority must always be saving lives.


Defence & Irish Neutrality

Barry believes that as the world changes around us, we should start an open and healthy debate on what this means for Ireland's traditional policy of military neutrality.

Foreign Affairs

Barry has dedicated much of his parliamentary work to shaping Irish and European foreign policy. Foreign policy should be grounded in the values of humanity, peace, human rights, justice, the rule of law, equality and tackling climate change.

Strengthening Democracy

Barry believes that trade policy can play an essential role in increasing European competitiveness while at the same time promoting international development.
