Councillor Laura McGonigle

Cllr Laura McGonigle

Cork City Council

I care about our community and I want to do my part to make it better. As your councillor, I have worked over the last 7 years to improve the facilities in our area, promote investment and at the end of the day make this a better place for us to live.rn rnI am an accountant by profession and my day job is the management of the finances for Inhance Technology in Blackrock. We are an Irish technology company and I’’m proud to have been there from the very start. Working in a local company, especially in the technology sector, gives me great experience in business. This is very useful when it comes to being your councillor because I know what it takes to make projects work within budgets and deliver results.

And we can’’t build a better Cork without getting results and making public money go further.

My record stands for itself and I hope proves my dedication to you and our city. I supported from the outset, the redevelopment of Pairc Ui Chaoimh into a state of the art sports campus that will benefit all in the City and local community. I was the first to bring the idea of a Cork Bike Scheme to Ministerial attention. I launched the Cork Passport Initiative. I campaigned for additional public hours in Douglas Pool and was delighted that upgrade works to the value of half a million were completed last year. I have kept in constant contact with constituents over the last five years, through my newsletter, email and text updates – which proved very beneficial during the storm and water shortages. With my council colleagues, we secured the €1.5million Upgrade of Blackrock Village, of which –phase 1 is due to start this year.rn
