Electoral Area: Cork City South Central

Cork City Council

Cllr Shane O’Callaghan

Shane was elected Deputy Lord Mayor of Cork City Council in June 2020, and will hold that office for twelve months.

He was elected as a Fine Gael Councillor in the South Central Ward in the Local Elections in May 2019.

Whether you are raising a young family, travelling to work or college or enjoying your retirement, I want to ensure that Cork continues to be a great place for you to live.
I will work for the people for the full 5-year term, not just when an election is coming up. I will make sure that people will not be able to say that they only see me at election time.
I believe that it is vital that the area has a councillor from the Government party, to ensure that the area’s voice is properly heard at national level as well as at local level.
As a Barrister, speaking up for people in Court and negotiating on their behalf is what I have been doing on a daily basis for the last 13 years. I want to use these skills to represent you and the local area and to fight to ensure that the best services are delivered to the area.
