THE new Cathaoirleach of the Killaloe Municipal District is Fianna Fáil’s Pat Hayes.
The Caher-based councillor took over the role from Pat Burke of Whitegate who has held the role for two consecutive terms.
Councillor Hayes was nominated on Monday at the AGM of the district by Councillor Alan O’Callaghan and seconded by Councillor Tony O’Brien.
Taking over the role, Councillor Hayes thanked Councillor Burke for his work for the last two years. He also outlined his priorities for the year ahead, including furthering projects like the Killaloe Bypass and Inis Cealtra.
“We have many plans in the pipeline in this district,” he noted. “What I want to see now is delivery.”
Director of Services Ann Haugh thanked Councillor Burke and welcomed Councillor Hayes to his new role. “I have no doubt but that you’ll keep us on our toes,” she said.
