Local Independent Returned

E-mail Print PDF

A collective sigh which was a mixture of relief and joy was heard in Mullinahone at around 1.20am on Sunday morning last. It had just been announced on local radio that Eddie O’Meara, Ballydonnell had been returned as a member of the new 40 people Tipperary County Council. Eddie election came at the end of a long day and saw him reach the quota with 1,418 votes and become the third member for the Carrick-on-Suir area to be elected.

Three more members were elected after Eddie, but none of these reached the quota. When the first South Tipp Co. Council was elected 115 years ago, in 1899 P.F Mullally of Kyleglanna was elected for the Mullinahone area. P.F. was re-elected to the 2nd Co. Council in 1902 and became it’s Chairman. It is nice to see another Mullinahone man elected to the new Tipperary Co. Council all those years later. Eddie, himself was elected to the now old South Tipperary Co. Council in 1999 after a period of 71 years when no Mullinahone person had been elected. Eddie was re-elected in 2004 and again in 2009. He has always been and Independent Councillor and has now been elected for the 4th time.
