“I have already lined up a meeting with the National Transport Authority to persuade them to undertake a review of the route.
“I understand the needs and aspirations of young families and I want to be a fresh and clear voice for them on Louth County Council next May. I am looking forward to calling to homes in Tullyallen, Monasterboice and other parts of the electoral area in the coming months.”
Welcoming Michelle’s selection, Senator Ged Nash said;
“Michelle has already shown what a great representative she will be for the area. Politics locally and nationally needs more women of Michelle’s calibre.
“She is already getting things done for her community. Michelle has an incredible work ethic and I will be working closely with her to make sure that she joins Cllrs. Paul Bell and Pio Smith on Louth County Council.”
