The Mayor of the City and County of Limerick and the Chief Executive of Limerick City and County Council are paying tribute to former Cathaoirleach of Limerick County Council, Eddie Creighton on his sad passing.
Eddie, from Hospital, County Limerick, was a member of the Progressive Democrats and served as a Councillor in the Kilmallock Electoral Area for 18 years. He was first elected in 1991 and retired as a public representative in 2009. He was elected as Cathaoirleach of Limerick County Council in 1994 and again in 2006.
Mayor of the City and County of Limerick, Cllr Francis Foley said: “I had the pleasure of serving on the then Limerick County Council with Eddie Creighton. He was a total gentleman, always extremely courteous and a great person to give solid advice no matter what party you represented. For him it was all about what was in the best interest of Limerick. He chaired the council with a fair hand and was a great public representative for the people in his electoral area. I want to extend my condolences to his wife Peg and all his family. May he rest in peace.”
Chief Executive of Limerick City and County Council Dr Pat Daly said: “It was with great sadness that we learned of the passing of former Limerick County Councillor Eddie Creighton. Eddie was extremely amiable and was well respected and liked by both councillors and staff at Limerick County Council. He made a significant contribution to the work of the local authority. Our thoughts are with Eddie’s wife Peg, sons Denis and Mark, daughter Mary and all his family at this difficult time.”
