“There are huge challenges and opportunities ahead of us and my priority will be to work alongside my colleagues to deliver more and better housing, more facilities and improve the lives of everyone.
“This is an exciting time in politics across our island and I look forward to playing my part on the local Council to build a better, fairer and united Ireland for all.” Críoch/Ends
