My replacement on Fingal County Council, Councillor Anthony Lavin.
“Anthony Lavin has been one of my closest political allies for my seven years in local politics, he is a man of the upmost integrity and has vast experience working with residents associations, community groups and the Fine Gael organisation in Dublin North. He has worked with me on all three of my successful election campaigns since 2004.
“I am very pleased that a man of his calibre was selected by the members of Fine Gael in the Howth/Malahide electoral area to replace me on Fingal County Council.
“I am certain that Councillor Lavin will work tirelessly with his colleagues on Fingal County Council and with Deputy Flanagan and I, along with Minister Reilly in the coming years.
