KILKENNY Borough Council is to erect a new plaque in honour of the late Margaret Tynan, who was the first female Mayor of the City.

Council members had requested a commemorative plaque be placed at John’s Green. Following consultation with the family of the late Ms Tynan, it was granted approval. The motion was proposed by Cllr Paul Cuddihy (FG) and seconded by Cllr John Coonan (FF) at last week’s meeting of the borough council.

“If anyone deserves this special honour, it is Margaret Tynan,” said Cllr Coonan.
