New Monaghan Councillor to be officially co-opted today

Richard Truell will be officially co-opted onto Monaghan County Council when members meet later this afternoon.

Last week Fine Gael members voted for him to replace Councillor Eva Humphreys in the Ballybay-Clones area – she resigned last month citing an increased work load and time constraints. Speaking at his selection in Newbliss, Richard Truell said the role will be a challenge but he’ll be able to balance the commitment with his full-time job in Cavan General Hospital.

Members of Monaghan County Council will vote on his co-option to the chamber at the beginning of their monthly meeting.
