Begley Reflects On Busy Year As Cathaoirleach

The outgoing Cathaoirleach of Clare County Council says he’s enjoyed a busy year as the First Citizen of Clare.

Independent Clonlara Councillor Michael Begley’s term of Mayor ends this afternoon, when it’s expected Fianna Fáil’s Cathal Crowe will take over the reins.

This afternoon’s AGM of the local authority will also see six new councillors take up their seats for the first time, as the new five-year term of the local government begins.


Councillor Begley has been reflecting on his highlights in his year in charge.
