Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

WEX­FORD TD James Browne made jour­ney north to County Wick­low re­cently to take on the im­por­tant role of chair­ing the Fianna Fáil Wick­low Comhairle Dáil Chean­tair AGM.

The well-at­tended meet­ing took place in the Mid­way Bar in Ark­low and saw some pos­i­tive en­gage­ment from mem­bers. All those present are look­ing for­ward to a good out­come in the next Gen­eral Elec­tion and will be work­ing hard to see their can­di­dates, Pat Casey TD and Stephen Don­nelly TD, re-elected.

Dur­ing the course of the meet­ing, a new of­fi­cer board was elected.

John O’Neill will serve as cathaoir­leach, with John Byrne in the po­si­tion of leas cathaoir­leach. Kath­leen Kelle­her was elected to the role of sec­re­tary, while Paddy Mor­daunt and Hugh O’Ke­effe will be trea­sur­ers. The po­si­tion of PRO was taken by Daragh Gre­gan, Chris Walsh was elected as youth of­fi­cer, Paul McKnight will be the con­stituency of­fi­cer and Ai­dan Bros­nan will be the deputy con­stituency of­fi­cer. Moya Mc­Grath Doyle will rep­re­sent Wick­low CDC on the Na­tional Ex­ec­u­tive.

Newly-elected cathaoir­leach John O’Neill said that the party will con­tinue to work hard and rep­re­sent the county to best of its abil­ity.

‘Fianna Fáil Wick­low is in a strong po­si­tion,’ said Mr O’Neill. ‘The party has su­perb lo­cal rep­re­sen­ta­tion on Wick­low County Coun­cil. Our Coun­cil­lors will con­tinue to work hard for the peo­ple of the county.

‘On a na­tional level, Pat Casey speaks for FF on hous­ing and Stephen Don­nelly speaks for FF on health. Our two TDs are ex­cel­lent na­tional pub­lic rep­re­sen­ta­tives and serve Wick­low well.

Not­ing that Brexit and the next Gen­eral Elec­tion are the two ma­jor is­sues on the hori­zon, Mr O’Neill said he is look­ing for­ward to work­ing with the party’s pub­lic rep­re­sen­ta­tives and mem­bers on these is­sues.
