INDEPENDENT Jim Cuddy has just been elected to Galway County Council after the fourth count in the Athenry-Oranmore electoral area.

This is Cuddy’s fourth time to be elected to County Hall and he was raised shoulder high by his supporters when the result was announced at the Count Centre in The Galway Lawn Tennis Club.

Speaking to The Tuam Herald Cllr Cuddy said it was “incredible” that after 16 years on the council he received another endorsement from the people despite losing out on almost 500 votes as a result of the local boundary changes.
