SEAN O’Sullivan has thrown his hat into the ring for the Glanmire area ahead of the upcoming local elections.
Mr O’Sullivan recently launched his election manifesto in Glanmire and spoke about issues he would like to resolve in his local community.
‘‘Glanmire has for many years been overlooked as a growing satellite town - with a population of over 22,000 - for essential services,’’ he said.
With regards to the promise of a new Garda station for the area, he said that a site had been identified but unfortunately has never been delivered.
‘‘There’s a need for a new community centre, this has been promised but again, never delivered.
“Also a Health Centre has been overlooked and there should be a focus on infrastructure to cater for heavy traffic demand with the building of 650 houses in Glanmire,” he added.
In 2014 Mr O’Sullivan went very close to securing a seat in the present County Council, with the late Claire Cullinane claiming the seat.
“My work has already started and I intend to run an intensive campaign in 2019,” he said.
He plans to open a constituency office in Glanmire and Mayfield.
