Calls For Councils To Address Gender Imbalance

Clare County Council has one of the highest levels of female representation in its senior management of any Council in Ireland.

Figures released to the Dáil show that 26% of Council Chief Executives and 28% of Directors of Service – the next level of management – are women.

Three of Clare’s five Directors of Service are female, the second highest – in percentage terms – of any local authority in the country.
