I am delighted to be elected as the Fifth Cathaoirleach of Tipperary County Council.
During my term of office I hope to promote the county, with a particular emphasis on jobs and rural Tourism. I would also like to see ongoing investment in the areas of housing, local roads and sewerage schemes in local villages.
it is important that Tipperary is well placed to avail of any opportunities that will arise from any National or European funding streams that become available.
I look forward to meeting the various community and voluntary groups throughout this county who do Trojan work in their local communities.
I will continue to promote the importance of shopping local in order to support and grow our retail and indigenous sector, which is critical to the local economy.
The Local Electoral Area Boundary recommendations represent another challenge for Councillors when they go to the electorate in 2019 for re-election and I would like to wish each Councillor every success in that regard.
In conclusion, I look forward to working with the Management, Staff and Members of the Council in ensuring that the Premier County continues to grow and develop thus offering greater opportunities for all of our Citizen's.
