Charleville based Coun­cil­lor Ian Doyle was se­lected along with Bernard Moyni­han to con­test the elec­tion for the Kan­turk elec­toral area.

Ac­cept­ing the nom­i­na­tion, Coun­cil­lor Ian Doyle ac­knowl­edged the pres­ence of Ain­drias Moyni­han T.D., and Michael Moyni­han T.D., and fel­low coun­cil­lors. He thanked them for the nom­i­na­tion to con­test the 2019 Lo­cal Elec­tions on be­half of Fianna Fail.

Coun­cil­lor Doyle stated: “It has been an hon­our and priv­i­lege to rep­re­sent Charleville, New­town and Bal­ly­hea on the Fer­moy Mu­nic­i­pal Dis­trict of Cork County Coun­cil for the past five years. ‘ Lo­cal Mat­ters’ was the cam­paign slo­gan for that elec­tion, and it has proved vi­tal in terms of fund­ing and ser­vices.”

He sighted in­ci­dents of com­mu­nity fund­ing, amenity grants for clubs and or­gan­i­sa­tions, town de­vel­op­ment funds and vil­lage re­newal for the lo­cal area.

He praised the work of many vol­un­tary or­gan­i­sa­tions in North Cork and pledged to con­tinue to rep­re­sent them on Cork County Coun­cil in the fu­ture, if elected.

The 2019 lo­cal elec­tions sees the re­turn of the Charleville, New­town and Bal­ly­hea dis­tricts be­ing placed in the Kan­turk Mu­nic­i­pal Dis­trict area.

“It also sees a new con­fig­u­ra­tion in the Cork City/Coun­cil ad­min­is­tra­tion and it is vi­tal that, we here in our area, have a lo­cal rep­re­sen­ta­tive to fight for fund­ing for the de­vel­op­ment and the good of the com­mu­ni­ties in our re­gion, “he said.

Cllr. Doyle ac­knowl­edged the work of Michael Moyni­han TD, with whom he had worked daily with for the last five years, and stated that it is es­sen­tial that Cork North West re­tains its two Fianna Fail TDs in the next gen­eral elec­tion.
