Westport Chamber of Commerce hosted their Election Special: “Meet the candidates” at Westport Town Hall Theatre on Thursday 16th May.

An invitation to attend had been issued to all local election candidates in the Westport Electoral Area of the Westport/Belmullet Municipal District.


Each candidate was allowed to give a Three-minute Pitch outlining their ideas and goals if elected to Mayo County Council followed by a question and answer session.



This was an opportunity for people to meet all of the candidates in one place, and to hear their responses to questions and concerns that have been submitted by the voters in their electoral area.

Well-known Mid-West Radio presenter, Tommy Marren acted as an Independent Chairperson and had full control of moderating the proceedings.

All of the proceeds from ticket sales were donated to Westport Meals on Wheel, tickets cost €5.00 each.


Thank you to all who attended the event, which raised €505 for Westport Meals On Wheels.


Special thanks to Rosaleen Heraty and her team in the Westport Town Hall Theatre, Tommie Marren from Midwest Radio, Dermott Langan and Geraldine Horkan from The Westport Chamber, Time keeper Oral Good and of course all the local candidates who attended, Clr Brendan Mulroy, Chris Maxwell, Keira Keogh, Peter Nolan and Cllr Peter Flynn.
