Lord Mayor Of City Felt Privileged To Represent Cork During Such A Difficult Time As He Faces Into Last Month In Office
Councillor Joe Kavanagh will be handing over the mayoral chains outside of City Hall for the first time ever on June 18th due to the pandemic
The Lord Mayor of the City usually takes part in trips to places like China and California, however the Covid-19 crisis has forced the cancellation of the trips for the past two years.
The Lord Mayor has launched an anti-litter initiative, taken part in commemorations related to the War of Independence and engaged with communities across the City.
Speaking to RedFM News, Lord Mayor Joe Kavanagh says he intends to continue that work after June:
"What I'll miss about the job is the widespread engagement with so many different groupings, on an ongoing basis. I'm still a public representative. I'm a councillor for the Northeast Ward, which is the Mayfield, Montenotte, St. Luke's, Tivoli, Glanmire, Ballyvolane, Upper Glanmire areas, as such. So I mean, I have a plan of continuous engagement with my local communities and working tirelessly for my local communities, as I've been doing for the last 10 years."
