Mayo County Council has a new Cathaoirleach following yesterday’s Annual General Meeting in the Mount Falcon Hotel, Ballina.

Cllr Seamus Weir is the new Cathaoirleach of Mayo County Council.

Knockmore-based Independent councillor Seamus Weir is Mayo’s new first citizen as he was elected unopposed.

It is the second time that Cllr Weir has held the position, when he did so in 2007 as a Fine Gael councillor.

This means that four of the five Cathaoirleach positions in Mayo are now occupied by Independent councillors.

Cllr Weir takes over from Swinford-based Fianna Fáil Cllr Michael Smyth.

A full report will be in next Tuesday’s Western People.
