Statement from Cllr Peter Ryan

18th October 2021 - Fine Gael Press Office

“I have made the difficult decision to step away from my role in Tipperary County Council. I have today written to the local authority to inform them of my decision to resign as a councillor.

“Due to a change in circumstances, I am no longer able to commit the time which meeting the demands of the position entails.

“For this reason, I believe it is better to allow someone else take over and give this position the time and dedication it requires. Being a county councillor has been complex and demanding, but it has also been one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had.

“It is something I will always be grateful for and remember with pride. It has been a privilege to work as a public representative on behalf of my constituents.

“I will now take time to decide where my future career is.

“I want to thank all the Fine Gael members, Tipperary County Council staff, my council colleagues, and everyone who has placed their trust and support in me during this period since my election to the local authority in 2019.

“I also wish to profoundly thank my family, friends, neighbours and all who put their faith in me and for the support I have received on numerous occasions since my 2019 election. I am eternally grateful.

“I want to wish all the best to my colleagues in the chamber and to the executives who have been working incredibly hard during these challenging times.

“I will continue to assist the people of Tipperary and ensure the projects I have started are seen through to fruition.”
