The councillors who lead the various municipal districts in the county for the next year will be decided this week.

Following the outcome of the local elections in 2019, various political parties formed voting pacts, allowing for the rotation of Cathaoirleach or Mayor positions.

However, all of the predicted outcomes are subject to a vote at each AGM.


On Thursday (June 24th), the AGMs of Tralee, Listowel and Castleisland Corca Dhuibhne Municipal Districts will take place.

Fianna Fáil Cllr Johnnie Wall is anticipated to become the next Mayor of Tralee, Fine Gael Cllr Mike Kennelly is set to become Cathaoirleach of Listowel MD and Fianna Fáil Cllr Fionnán Fitzgerald is likely to be the new Castleisland Corca Dhuibhne MD Cathaoirleach.

On Friday (June 25th) the Killarney Municipal District AGM is expected to see Labour's Marie Moloney become the next Cathaoirleach.


On the same day, Fianna Fáil Cllr Michael Cahill is anticipated to become Cathaoirleach of the Kenmare Municipal District.

Each of the meetings will be held in-person at locations in the various MD areas; it will be the first in-person meeting for councillors this year.

The AGM of Kerry County Council will take place next Monday (June 28th) where it is expected that Fianna Fáil's Jimmy Moloney will become the next Cathaoirleach, taking over from Fine Gael's Patrick O'Connor Scarteen.


Fianna Fáil Cllr Michael Cahill is set to become Leas Cathaoirleach.
