Address of outgoing Cathaoirleach

Additional documents:

AnCathaoirleach Clouncillor O. Smyth thanked the Members, Chief Executive and staff for their help and support during his term as Cathaoirleach.

 

Outgoing Cathaoirleach Speech

 

“OK the first thing to say is to welcome you all here for the next five years. We have 15 new Councillors elected; it's a significant moment for all of you and for your families who are in attendance. You can all be very proud of yourselves for having been elected to public office so you're all very welcome here, and over time, this is a co-operative Council, and that you will, I advised the new entrants to make friends with the existing Councillors who will come up to you and talk to you, so that you can work together to solve problems together, to pass motions. So I see some smiles from the older hands in the audience.

 

So this is my last meeting as Cathaoirleach, and I just want to say before we move on to the first item on the agenda, which is the election of the new Cathaoirleach, I just want to say a couple of words.

 

Over the last year, I believe that I met more than 10 thousand people, so it was busy time for an introverted person like me and I really enjoyed it no end. These events are typically events where somebody is receiving a prize, where somebody is being honoured, and so they’re celebratory events, and they are something that raises the spirit several times a day because there were typically 10 events in a week, 500 in a year so it was an amazing and unique experience, so I thank everybody for supporting me as Chair, and I felt that I always have the support of everybody amongst the Councillors and amongst the staff.

 

You know, chairing the meetings is one part which is like refereeing; deputising or officiating ceremonies is another part, but also part of chairing, being Cathaoirleach, is to try to drive certain projects forward. My goal, and it's no surprise to anybody, is to make Dún Laoghaire greener, and I think as we go round the County, and all of you have been going around the County for the last couple of months knocking on doors and canvassing, you'll have seen a lot of green areas and you will see that things are greener than they were before, and that's partly because we're not using weed killer anymore, and it's partly because we brought in a policy to help pollination, and you see as you go round the roundabout all of us must have been struck by the beauty of some of the wild flower displays and things that are to be seen. It's really visible that we are greening our County, and that we're making progress on this and that's something that just cheers me up every time I see it, so thank you to all of you for supporting me and supporting everybody on getting  ...  view the full minutes text for item C/314

The new Cathaoirleach then took the Chair.

 

 

Cathaoirleach’s Acceptance Speech

“Thank you everyone, so the first thing I’d like to say is I did notice my car parking space was full of bicycles this morning so I am fully intending to leave it that way and when I’m on my bike I’ll use it, and when I'm in the car I will take my chances, so I hope that sends a message.

 

Now firstly I would very much like to thank outgoing Cathaoirleach Councillor Ossian Smyth on a very successful year as Chair of the County. I want to commend him on his cordial but firm and, above all, fair approach conducting meetings. I will endeavor to emulate these qualities to the best of my ability over the course of the next 12 months.

 

I want to express my sincere gratitude to my Group for putting me forward for election to the position of Cathaoirleach today. I have very much enjoyed and learned a lot from working with you over the past five years and look forward to continuing to do so into the future. That sentiment extends to all groups and members as well as to the Executive team and staff here at DLR County Council.

 

I particularly want to thank my two other Fianna Fáíl Councillor colleagues from neighbouring wards in Dublin Rathdown, Councillor Donal Smith and Councillor Tommy Murphy, for proposing and seconding me to seek election as Cathaoirleach. I have enjoyed a very close working relationship and high degree of support from you both over the years and I am honoured that you selected to put me forward for this position.  ...  view the full minutes text for item C/315
