Cllr Domnick Connolly has confirmed he will contest this year’s local elections in May and has outlined his concerns regarding the lack of job creation, the decline of rural services and the threat posed by Brexit.
He has also confirmed that he will be running a poster-free campaign in the Roscommon Municipal Area. Domnick was first elected to Roscommon County Council in 1991 and subsequently re-elected in 2004 and has served as a Councillor since. Most recently he has served on the Development & Enterprise Support (including Roads & Culture) Strategic Policy Committee as well as Roscommon Town Team.
Confirming he will contest the local elections, Independent Cllr. Connolly said: “I would like to be able to continue my work to date and continue to make a positive contribution in this area. We have to support farmers, particularly in the event of a no deal Brexit, and we have to support local people to continue to be employed in the agriculture sector.
“It is time that job creation in rural Ireland became the serious focus and with Athlone designated as a centre of growth, Roscommon can continue to develop while remaining a desirable place to live and raise a family.”
Cllr. Connolly remains committed to health services locally, something that was demonstrated in 2011 when he left the Fine Gael party over the issue of Roscommon Hospital. “We have seen recent announcements regarding new services at Roscommon Hospital and I hope to see the projects at both the hospital and the Sacred Heart Hospital progress without delay,” stated Cllr. Connolly.
