There is not much to report yet. The Mallow Kanturk area is in 2 Dail areas, Cork East and Cork North West. It has both a rural and and urban area. The issues that people need addressed will be diverse. One area that concerns me is how the new local government will affect the people. I fear the local authority managers will have greater powers than they do now.
We have a good Cllr in Cllr Ronan Sheehan. He already has experience as a County and Town Councilor. His father has a local business in Sheehans greengrocers in Mallow. Ronan is involved in the GAA. He understands the needs of workers and the rural community.
