My name is Margaret Lynam-Sweeney. I was recently selected by the Party to contest the Local Elections for the Mullingar area for Westmeath County Council.
I have been a lifelong member of the Mullingar Branch of the Party and in conjunction with my local TD, Willie Penrose, I am looking forward to the upcoming elections to address and progress the many needs of my local community in Mullingar.
I was born and reared in the Clonmore area of the town and am now residing in The Close, Lakepoint Park for a long number of years.
I am married with one grown up daughter (Charmaine) and have fostered children for the last 25 years.
I have been involved over the years in many of the Party campaigns in Longford-Westmeath for European, Dáil and Local Elections, I am well aware of the commitment and drive that is required to be a Local County Councillor.
I have a great interest in the areas of health, education, more jobs for the Mullingar area to name just a few.
If elected to Westmeath County Council, I would hope to progress these issues further during my term.
