Message from Cllr Pat Daly, President, AILG 2016/17:
"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."
