General election candidate, and former Mayor of Co Cork, Cllr Alan Coleman has committed to retaining two 5-day-a-week offices in Bandon and Skibbereen if elected to Dail Eireann this Friday.
During the election campaign Coleman has operated the two offices at St Finbarr’s place, Bandon and Main Street, Skibbereen and he intends to retain these premises.
Coleman commented “it is important for a representative to be accessible to people to discuss issues that they may need assistance with. Both offices will be open 5-days-a-week, rather than some constituency offices of other representatives that may open only one day a week. If I am elected on Friday it will not be for one section of the constituency, it will be for all of Cork South West and that is why I will have an office in both the Eastern and Western sections of West Cork”
