My name is Seamus Ryan and I am the Labour Candidate in the 2019 Local Elections for the Ennis Electoral Area. Many of you will know me from my years working as a Librarian in De Valera Library in Ennis & as a Peace Commissioner. Working in the library, I meet people of all ages and all walks of life every day and as such I know how important good services are to everyone. That is why as a Peace Commissioner I work to make sure people get the services they deserve.

I would like the opportunity to serve as your County Councillor, to represent you, your needs and your concerns. Ennis Town and Clare face many challenges over the next number of years from quality employment, to affordable housing, protecting against the effects of climate change like flooding, making sure that your money is spent properly & that our County Town has the amenities that make it an even better place to live.

As your new Councillor I will do my best to make the decisions affecting our community as transparent as possible.
