Negotiations to select the new Mayor and Deputy Mayor of Clare County Council are continuing ahead of the council AGM this week.

Meetings by each of the political groups were held last night ahead of the official announcement on Friday.

It’s understood Fianna Fáil, which increased its representation in the local authority from 12 to 13 in the new-look council, wants two of its councillors to sit as Cathaoirleach and Leas Cathaoirleach.


Replacements for outgoing Mayor Councillor Michael Begley and Deputy Mayor Councillor Alan O’ Callaghan will be announced at Friday’s Council AGM.
