Tolan honoured as she takes up head of LMETB

Fine Gael Councillor, and long time educational campaigner, Sharon Tolan, was last week elected to the position of Chair of the Louth & Meath Education and Training Board. In what was, a poignant moment for Tolan, the election of the new Chairperson took place in Laytown-Bettystown Secondary School, Coláiste na hInse, which Sharon campaigned hard for, over a decade ago.

"I am both delighted and honoured to be elected as the Chairwoman of the Board of LMETB. I have always been very proud of the successful campaigns myself and other local parents ran, which saw us even appear before the Oireachtas Committee for Education, highlighting the young commuters we had back then in East Meath, who were leaving their homes at the crack of dawn to travel long distances to school. I will continue to champion the educational needs of both Louth and Meath in my current position."
