Cllr Robbie Ireton is hoping to represent the people of Gorey and Courtown for his fourth consecutive term.

The Labour councillor was selected to contest the local election for the party at the party's selection convention over the weekend.

He was unopposed.

Speaking afterwards Cllr Ireton said he has been a public representative for the past 15 years and has enjoyed all his years on the council.

If elected he said she will be doing everything in his power to advance Courtown and Gorey. 'We have done a lot of work in Courtown but there is still more to be done. We need to get the beach back to its former glory and the harbour walls are not what they are supposed to be but we are working on them.

'Gorey is developing big time and we want to continue building on this.'

Cllr Ireton thanked Labour leader Deputy Brendan Howlin and Cllr George Lawlor for chairing the convention. He thanked everyone who had attended the event especially in light of the inclement weather.

Cllr Ireton thanked his wife Mary, his family and friends for all their support saying he will be launching his election campaign in the coming weeks.
