Nearly three-quarters of Dubliners want a directly elected mayor for the county.
Politicians from across the political divide met today to see if they could bring the proposal to reality.
Two and a half years ago, councillors from Fingal vetoed a plan that would have allowed Dubliners to vote on whether they wanted a directly elected mayor.
Now, support for the proposal seems to be back on track after a survey revealed that 75 percent of us would like to have a say on who becomes the first citizen of Dublin.
Politicians from all parties met in the Mansion House today to see how they could move forward and hold the plebiscite which would get the views of Dubliners.
It was organised by Senator Kevin Humphreys, who said that "this is what today is about, a consultation with elected Councillors to see exactly what they would want in a new bill to have a directly elected mayor".
"We would then go and let the citizens of Dublin make the decision", he explained.
Dublin's current Lord Mayor Brendan Carr is supportive of the idea "the main issue of having a directly elected mayor for Dublin is that they would have the proper support and proper funding to ensure that the concerns of the people of Dublin are going to be properly addressed".
If work starts on a new bill, a vote could happen by the end of next year.
