Dublin's new Lord Mayor is expected to be Hazel Chu of the Green Party when the election is held next Monday.

Councillor Chu, who topped the poll in the Pembroke ward in the local elections, is due to take over from Tom Brabazon of Fianna Fáil when a vote is taken at the council's annual meeting.

"Hopefully other councillors will support me and work together cross-party over the coming year," she said.

It is the Green Party's turn to take over the position of Lord Mayor under the Dublin Agreement drawn up with Fianna Fáil, Labour and the Social Democrats.

Councillor Brabazon took over the position when party colleague Paul McAuliffe was elected a TD at the 2020 General Election.
