A similar motion was introduced by Cllr Jim Ryan back in February but was defeated when then Mayor Michael Cleary had to use his casting vote to break a 4-4 deadlock - Cllrs Ryan, Gerard Fogarty, David Doran and Noel O’Dwyer supporting the motion while Cllrs Cleary, EvelynNevin, Michael Grogan and John Kennedy went against it. Cllr John Kenehan was not present. The motion could not be discussed again for 6 months, but that time is now up.
