Clarecastle councillor, Paul Murphy will sit on the most boards and committees of all twenty eight elected members of Clare County Council for the next five years.

Negotiations have taken place between the various political groupings on the local authority with all positions ratified during the June meetings at County Council and Municipal District level in recent weeks.

Fine Gael’s Paul Murphy will sit on nine different bodies such as the Limerick Clare Education Training Board, Hunt Museum Trust, Local Traveller Accommodation Advisory Committee, Twinning Committee, Standing Orders Sub-Committee, Memorial Committee, Promote Ennis, Joint Policing Committee plus one of the local authority’s Strategic Policy Committees. However only his post with the LCETB will result in payment.

Murphy’s duties will also increase during the five year term, if as expected he takes on either roles of Mayor or Deputy Mayor of the Ennis Municipal District between now and the 2025 local elections, he will automatically join the Working Group for the Action Plan for Rural Ireland and the Market Advisory Committee.

Shannon councillor Mike McKee (SF) was only appointed to one body, the Local Traveller Accommodation Advisory Committee, the least of all elected representatives. Like all of his colleagues, McKee will also be on one SPC.
