An Ríocht AC kindly played host to the 2017 AGM for Castleisland’s Fine Gael branch last night.
By: Art O’Mahony, Kerry Young Fine Gael Chairman
Membership spanning three generations congregated in the front room for a healthy catch-up and to discuss a range of topics, from Brexit to Eamon Casey.
Committed their Time
Fine Gael Oireachtas members, Brendan Griffin T.D. and Senator Paul Coghlan committed their time to come along and listen to queries and ideas from the blue-bloods of Oiléan Chiarraí.
Our own Cllr. Bobby O’Connell noted that the scheduled St. Patrick’s Day festivities for the town look to be of optimal standard as always, along with next October’s 25th annual Patrick O’Keeffe Traditional Music Festival.
Keeping the Community Updated
Castleisland Fine Gael launched its new Facebook page subsequent to our AGM, with the aim of keeping the local community updated on both regional and national developments affecting the town.
It was acknowledged that the party must work on strengthening its support base, especially among young people.
Defining Year Ahead
As Kerry YFG chairman I am confidant that this is a step in the right direction.
We have a defining year ahead of us. With a generational shift occurring in Government, ultimately going to deliver the youngest Taoiseach since the foundation of the state, be it Leo Varadkar or Simon Coveney. There certainly is a lot to look forward to!
