Thomas Pringle TD has extended his congratulations to Independent Cllr. John Campbell on his appoint as the new Chairman of Donegal County Council.

He said, “I’m absolutely delighted on the election of Councillor Campbell as Mayor of Donegal. It was a long drawn-out process but he came through it at the end.

“It’s an honour to have a member of our Independent team elected as Mayor and I have no doubt that he will do the people of Donegal proud.”

Mr. Pringle describe Cllr. Campbell as ‘a very competent individual who has the needs of the local people at the heart of his work’.

The Independent Councillor replaced Ian McGarvey as Mayor of Donegal shortly after 3.30pm today following a unanimous decision by the council after three previous adjournments.
