With plenty of coverage of the Election Count on Newstalk this weekend, we’re taking a look at the actual role and work of local councillors, and how local government works, or doesn’t in a lot of cases.

Andrea Gilligan was joined in studio by a panel of experts to look at the role of local Government in Ireland. She asked if councillors should be given more powers and responsibilities, and higher wages.

On the panel:

  • Dr. Eoin O'Malley, Director of the Masters in Public Policy in the School of Law and Government at DCU
  • Grace Tallon, Labour Councillor for Dun Laoghaire Rathdown and co founder of '& Co.'
  • Bobby O’Connell, Kerry Councillor and General Secretary of LAMA

Episode previously broadcast on March 23rd 2019.
