“It was an honour to be present in Westmeath County Council Monday
afternoon to witness the election of Cllr. Frank McDermott to the role
of Chairman of Westmeath County Councill” Minister for Housing and
Urban Renewal Damien English T.D. has said.
“Since the creation of the Meath West Dáil constituency in 2007
incorporating much of the North Eastern part of Westmeath into my Dáil
constituency, Frank has been a key supporter and friend to me, as well as
being a fantastic advocate for his area.
“His election to the Chair, as he celebrates 50 years in local
politics and serving the people, is a a very proper recognition of his
entire adult life spent in service to Westmeath and its welfare.
“I know that he will use his role well in advancing key issues for his
locality, and the wider County of Westmeath. I look forward as
Minister and as a local T.D. in helping him in whatever way I can.
“My congratulations again to Frank, his wife Ann, wider family,
friends, supporters and neighbours on this happy day” concluded
