Message from Cllr. Luie McEntire, President, AILG 2018/19:
"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."
As one of the longest serving County Councillors in the country, Luie was first elected as a member of Longford County Council in 1979. Representing the Granard Electoral Area, Luie is the current Cathaoirleach of Longford County Council having previously held the position of Cathaoirleach in 1986.
Cllr. McEntire was elected President of the AILG at its recent AGM on the 19th September 2018 in Mullingar.
