Nominations are open until 8th May for candidates to be nominated for the Clonakilty Mayoral election on Saturday 25th May.
A public information meeting will take place at O’Donovan’s Hotel at 8pm next Wednesday 24th April where everyone in the community interested in the election and role of Mayor of Clonakilty is encouraged to attend.
Speakers will outline the process and criteria to be a candidate, how business people not living locally may get a vote and all other aspects of the election, count and installation of the five new Mayors after the election.
The current five Mayors will briefly address the gathering to give an overview of their respective years as community Mayor of Clonakilty since 2014.
All clubs and organisations, prospective candidates and people with an interest in Clonakilty are encouraged to attend to hear about this unique project – which is the only one of its kind in the whole country.
