Welcome to the AILG website

Message from Cllr John Crowe, President, AILG:

"The AILG is a networking, policy development and training resource for the elected members of Ireland's thirty-one County and City Councils. The Association works through delegates in each of the councils to help develop a sense of collegiality among the elected members who serve the public in a variety of local government settings ranging from urban to suburban and rural. Through regular interaction with other stakeholders in the local government environment the AILG aims to ensure that the contribution of Ireland's democratically elected councillors is appreciated in Government Departments and throughout the full range of public agencies."

Cllr Crowe is a member of Clare County Council since 1999 and was Cathlaoirleach of Clare County Council in 2015. He has served on a wide variety of local government bodies at local, county and national levels.
