The election results for the new Maynooth Municipal District within Kildare County Council were completed over the weekend. I would like to thank everyone that considered voting for me and to wish the outgoing Councillors and the unsuccessful candidates all the best for their future community work.
It was not possible to meet with everyone during the campaign but I am very appreciative of those who engaged with me and the volunteers calling on doors on my behalf. Campaigns are challenging and my successful re-election would not have been possible without the generous help from family, friends and fellow community workers - I will always be appreciative.
As with any job, it’s back to the real work now. I am looking forward to developing a working relationship with the members of the new council. I would particularly like to congratulate fellow independent Councillor Teresa Murray on her first election to Kildare County Council.
