Kilgannon says jobs will be his priority as council cathaoirleach

The new Chairperson of Sligo County Council says that bringing jobs to the region will be one of his main priorities throughout his tenure as Cathaoirleach.

Fianna Fáil Councillor Seamus Kilgannon was voted in as the new chairperson at yesterday’s AGM of the county council.

Describing Sligo as the ‘driver’ of the North West, he said the council must continue to keep lobbying the government in an effort to bring jobs to the town.

He also said that it is imperative that jobs are there for graduates from local colleges such as IT Sligo.
