Cllr. Chis O’Leary will be a mayor for all the people of Cork

Speaking in City Hall today Sinn Féin MEP Liadh Ní Riada congratulated incoming Ard-Mhéara of Cork, Councillor Chris O’Leary and wished him well for the year ahead.

Liadh Ní Riada said:

“Chris O’ Leary is a fantastic public representative, a tireless worker for his community, and a true republican in every sense of the word. I have no doubt that as Ard-Mhéara of Cork Chris will make a real difference to the people of cork, and be an inclusive and accessible leader.

“Two of our greatest republican heroes, Tomás MacCurtain and Terence McSwiney served as Ard-Mhéara of this city and it it fitting that as we approach the centenary of our Easter Rising that we once again have a Sinn Féin Ard-Mhéara in Cork’s City Hall.

“Chris, along with the Sinn Féin team of councillors, will ensure that issues of central importance to the people of Cork such as housing, genuine and fair economic recovery, and equality for all will receive the attention they need.

“Cllr. Mick Nugent will take on the position of Leas Ard-Mhéara. Mick is a dedicated, determined and proactive representative. Mick recently took part in a delegation to the European parliament on positive mental health that I hosted and is a strong supporter of initiatives to prevent suicide and self-harm. I am delighted that such an able champion of such an important cause will hold the office of Leas Ard-Mhéara of Cork City.

“I want to wish both Chris and Mick well for the forthcoming year, and congratulate them, their families, colleagues and comrades on this very proud day.

“I look forward to working with the incoming Ard-Mhéara and a strong, dedicated and talented Sinn Féin team at local, national and European level to give Cork and Ireland the real and fair political representation that is sorely needed.”
