Fine Gael's Jim Holloway from Navan has been elected chairman of Meath County Council.

He was elected following an alliance with Fine Gael and eight of the nine independent members of the council. Trim councillor Trevor Golden was elected vice-chairperson.

A motion by Sinn Fein's Darren O'Rourke to have the special policy committees and various boards filled in relation to the proportion of party support was defeated in favour of a grouping system.

However, Fianna Fail and Sinn Fein later sprung a surprise by joining forces as a group to fill some of the positions on the committees.
