The people of Clonakilty, and visitors to the town, are invited to witness the installation of the new Mayor of Clonakilty, Anthony McDermott, at a public ceremony at 8pm at Astna Square in the town centre on Thursday June 9th.

This will follow the tradition which was set two years ago when Ireland’s first-ever directly-elected Mayor, Colette Twomey, was installed, and last year when Cionnaith Ó Súilleabháin took over for his one-year term.

Clonakilty is the only town in the country now with a town mayor. 

The changeover ceremony is held each year in Astna Square in a public event, because the Mayor is of the people. 

The outgoing Mayor Cionaith will give a short speech outlining a synopsis of his activities during the year, before handing over the Mayoral robe and chain to his successor, new Mayor Anthony McDermott.
