06 peopleThe commitment of those involved in community work is much admired and appreciated by all. Those who spend so much of their time helping and encouraging young people, be it in sport, scouting, drama classes, clubs or general youth work, are all making a real contribution to our welfare, helping to develop the valuable characters of the next generation. The Tidy Towns committees who have made such a real difference to our towns and villages deserve our collective thanks for their commitment and concern. People who give their time organising these activities and those of Community Councils who work long hours to deliver projects big and small to improve our environment.

These are modern patriots, giving of themselves for the benefit of all. I look forward to assisting all these organisation should you do me the honour of electing me once again to Fingal County Council
