A Welcome from the Mayor of County Cork, Declan Hurley

County Mayor
                        County Mayor, Declan Hurley                  





It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Cork County Council’s website. I believe that you will find its contents, links and online services to be of great interest and value.







The County Mayor and Elected Members of Cork County Council are supported by the Executive which is led by the Chief Executive, Mr Tim Lucey. You can find more information on my fellow Councillors on this website, including contact details, Minutes of Council meetings are also available. 

There are 55 Elected Members, representing the 8 electoral areas, corresponding to the 8 Municipal Districts. Elected Members, or Councillors, are elected for a five year term by you, the citizens of County Cork. The next Local Elections are in June 2019.

Cork County Council has developed this website to be one which is accessible and easy to use, providing timely and relevant content in a navigable format. You will find information on topics that interest you, as well as information on services that you can access.

I believe that it is of utmost importance that citizens feel connected to their local Council and their Elected Members; this website is but one of a range of channels of communication between Cork County Council and the communities and stakeholders in our county.

Thank you for visiting Cork County Council; I hope you find what you’re looking for, and that you continue to visit the site as new features are added over time.


Best wishes,

Councillor Declan Hurley, Mayor of the County of Cork.
