Serious illness did not prevent Clr. Pat Cody from leaving his hospital bed last Monday to make history by becoming the last-ever chairman of Enniscorthy Town Council.

Clr. Cody, who moved to Enniscorthy over 30 years ago from Kilkenny, has received the full backing of the man he has replaced, Clr. Keith Doyle. “All of the members are fully behind Pat and will be supporting him,” the Fianna Fail councilor explained to The Echo.

Coincidentally, Clr. Doyle is the son of the last Labour Party member to Chair the Council, the late Andy Doyle.

WICKLOW

Wicklow County Council has pleaded guilty in the middle of its trial to criminal health and safety violations relating to the death of two firefighters in Bray six years ago.

Brian Murray (46) and Mark O’Shaughnessy (26) died fighting a blaze at a disused ink factory at Adelaide Villas in Bray on September 26, 2007.

The plea came on day nine of the trial, which has now ended. The council will be sentenced on July 30 at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court when they face fines of up to $4 million.
