Councillor Jim Lynch rejects resigning speculation

Letterkenny's Mayor has denied suggestions that he may resign when his term in the chair ends in the summer, and seek to have a family member coopted onto Letterkenny Town Council in his place.

Cllr Jim Lynch says he has served as a councillor for over 25 years, and claims that he may resign from the council imply that he only stayed in the council so that he could become the mayor.

He says this is totally inaccurate.
