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.
