A mixture of the old with the new is one of the most striking features of the newly elected Limerick City and County Council.
A marathon 20-hour count, including one recount, finally revealed the forty councillors who will be the public representatives of the people of Limerick for the next five years.
Sixteen first time councillors have been elected, in addition to one who is returning to the fold after losing out on retaining his seat in 2014.
A total of eight women have been elected (six of whom are first time councillors), the same number as in the outgoing council, while 10 of the male councillors are new including the first ever Muslim to be elected to Limerick City and County Council, Abul Kalam Azad Talukder (FF).
FG’s John Egan has regained his seat that he lost out in 2014, while 23 of the outgoing 33 councillors contesting the election were returned.
The first meeting of the new Limerick City and County Council will take place in the Council Chambers, Dooradoyle on Friday 7 June 2019 at 3pm when a new Mayor of the City and County of Limerick will be elected.
