Final Mayor of Cobh elected

By Bryan T. Smyth

Town Council’s across County Cork and the rest of the Country are electing
their final Mayor’s this month.

It’s because under “local government reform” Minister Phil Hogan
will abolish all of Ireland’s 82 town councils next Summer.

Town Council’s are the lowest rung of democracy,
and there are 12 in County Cork, their functions will be absorbed by
County Councils.

The new – and final – Mayor of Cobh is Labour Cllr John Mulvihill Junior

He fears that businesses will suffer when Town Councils disappear
