Sean is an Independent candidate for election in the Tullamore Electoral Area of Offaly County Council. Sean was previously a member of Tullamore Town Council, Offaly County Council and Co Offaly VEC. Thus he has a lot of experience of local Government and can use that experience to help communities, bring business to Tullamore and get vital projects moving in this area.
Sean was a member of the Indoor Swimming Pool Committee for many years and when he became a member of the Council he ensured that this project was high on the agenda and eventually built at a cost of 13€m. He also campaigned for a Playground in the Town Park and was part of the Council when the Town Park was re-vamped at a cost of €2m. Tullamore Town Park is a great local facility and is considered one of the finest in the country. Sean has always said that he wants to be a Councillor because he “wants to get things done”. The completion of these two projects when he was a member of the Council is proof of this.
Sean is a founding member of the Tullamore St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee and has been Secretary / PRO for many years. This Parade has gone from strength to strength and is now one of the finest Parades in the country, attracting 1500 participants and an audience of 5000.
