I’d like to send my congratulations to Mayor of Letterkenny, Cllr Dessie Larkin, who was today elected by the members of Donegal County Council as Chairman of the County Council in Lifford.
Cllr Larkin is an extremely hard working public representative, and well deserves this accolade. I am sure he will serve Donegal and the County Council with the same commitment and vigour that he has shown as a member, and chairman, of Letterkenny Town Council.
Cllr Larkin will serve as chairman for one year, and will be tasked with running most meetings in Lifford, as well as representing Donegal across Ireland. His term as Mayor of Letterkenny comes to an end on Thursday, June 30th 2005, when Letterkenny Town Council hold their Annual General Meeting.
