INDEPENDENT Kerry County Council member Brendan Cronin has won the chain of office as cathaoirleach of Killarney Municipal District.

Fellow Independent Councillor Maura Healy-Rae had been expected to become cathaoirleach of Killarney following a pact between her father, TD Danny Healy-Rae, when he was a member of the council.

It had been planned following the 2014 local elections that Danny would take the helm of Killarney as a result of the deal. After he was elected to the Dáil, his daughter Maura was co-opted on to his seat.

At today’s AGM, Independent Cllr Donal Grady proposed Cllr Maura Healy-Rae.

Labour’s Cllr Terry O’Brien is Tralee’s new mayor, and Cllr Norma Foley, Fianna Fáil, was elected the leas-cathaoirleach, Tralee.

Cllr Aoife Thornton, Fine Gael, is the new cathaoirleach in Listowel, while Mike Kennelly, Fine Gael, is leas-cataoirleach.
