Speaking after his inauguration with, the lord mayor said “the most immediate challenge is the one that’s most urgent and that’s jobs, jobs, jobs.”

The May 2010 Live Register figures show437,922 people unemployed nationally, before seasonal adjustment.

Outlining some of the other problems he will face during his term, Fine Gael councillor Breen acknowledges that Dublin is likely to face disruption as work commences on the new Luas Broombridge line.

The lord mayor also gave an idea of his ambitions for Dublin and his own political philiosophy: “I don’t want the city to become the wealthiest city in the world” adding that he would rather Dublin be  “a city that… [gives its citizens] a good quality of life.”

“I’m pro business but I certainly wouldn’t be in any way right wing.”
