Rosslare Municipal District Council has a new Cathaoirleach following the departure of Cllr Ger Carthy, who has become Cathaoirleach of Wexford County Council at the annual general meeting held in ‘the Street’ at County Hall, Wexford.
The honour falls to Cllr Frank Staples from Ballymore-Mayglass, a former Fine Gael Director of Elections at local, Dáil and European levels.
Well-known for his outspoken support for better mental health services and support across the region, he is also a busy community activist.
As a farmer, Cllr Staples has “concerns about the Green policies for rural Ireland” but aims to do his best for all of Rosslare District over the coming year.
First elected to Wexford County Council in 2014, Cllr Staples launched the ASK campaign three years ago.
Leas-Cathaoirleach for Rosslare District for 2020-’21 is Cllr Lisa McDonald.
