Letterkenny’s new mayor calls for optimism

The new Mayor of Letterkenny says he's looking to the future with confidence. Fianna Fail Cllr Tadhg Culbert has previously served two terms as Council Chairperson, but this is the first time he's held the title of Mayor.

He was first elected to the council 25 years ago, but lost his seat in 1999. He was re-elected last year.

Cllr Culbert says a priority will be pushing the Letterkenny 400 celebration, a designation he fought hard to secure over the past number of months.

He believes the celebration will typify what he believes is a spirit of optimism in the town........
