I am Declan Hurley, your local Independent Councillor for West Cork and it has been a great honour for me to represent the people and communities of West Cork since 2009. Becoming a member of Cork County Council has given me a great insight into the needs of people in West Cork and the challenges that we face as a community.
Rural Ireland has suffered many setbacks in recent years, with a wave of emigration, the closing of many services and many other services being diminished. That is why there is a need for an enthusiastic and committed public representative to address these challenges and advise and assist on issues that are relevant and important to you as I have done so passionately and successfully since 2009.
I have a proven track record of getting involved in our communities and making things happen and I will continue to work with you and the communities throughout West Cork. I strongly believe that when we work together on projects and issues that are important to our communities we can achieve great things.
It is with great pride that I get to work on behalf of the people and communities of West Cork to maintain and grow its entitlements in the area of Jobs & Employment, Roads & Infrastructure, Agriculture, Fisheries & Food, Youth Services, Tourism, Health, Education, Amenities & Housing along with promoting policies that will allow reduction of property tax and commercial rates for businesses. I want to continue to be your independent voice in West Cork.
