Deputies Do Us Proud!

It was good news all round for the North County and our local TD’s recently when two of our political representatives were hailed in a gong show celebrating our country’s politicians. The awards were dished out courtesy of one of our national newspapers, which celebrates some of the great and some of the ‘not so great’ politicians throughout last year. Two of our local TD’s were lucky enough to have impressed the judges and swooped in to nab two of the awards. Junior Minister Trevor Sargent TD collected the ‘Best Junior Minister’ award while Darragh O’Brien TD was awarded the gong for ‘Best Back Bencher.’ The pair were hailed for their contributions to their respective roles and locals can be proud to see two of our deputies acknowledged for their efforts. Speaking to the County Leader Deputy O’Brien said “every now and again it’s nice to be recognised independently. While you can’t get too caught up in these things it was of course nice to get. I’m glad too that people can see we’re working.”
