Asking the Mayor some questions!

On Wednesday the 16th May the Eco Group got a tour of the Council Chamber in County Hall.  We got to sit in the councillors’ chairs in the chamber and ask the Mayor questions using the microphones. She was extremely nice to us and answered all our questions. To be the Mayor you have to be a councillor first.  We learned that anyone can be a councillor if you can be elected.  The Mayor’s chain is very heavy, made from real gold and has to be guarded every night.  We learned that South Dublin County Council take care of housing, the environment, planning and lots of other things in South Dublin, which includes Tallaght.  South Dublin County Council is a very good provider and they take care of South Dublin very well!
