Dublin Lord Mayor: Hazel Chu and her Chinese heritage

Hazel Chu is Dublin’s first Lord Mayor of Chinese heritage – an achievement that made even her hard-to-please “tiger mum” cry.

The 39-year-old’s parents emigrated from Hong Kong to Ireland in the 1970s.

The Green Party councillor speaks about the racism she and her family have faced – and the positive messages she’s received from the Chinese community after taking up the role.
