Sinn Féin's Cllr Sinead Burke has been elected as the first Mayor of the new Navan Municipal District.

At the body’s first meeting today, Cllr Burke was elected to the chair unopposed.

Councillors voted to confer the status of Mayor on the chair of the municipal authority, when they were advised that a district can have Mayoral status, if it has a population of 20,000 or more.

Cllr Wayne Forde was elected Deputy Mayor, also unopposed.

Councillors proposed holding their monthly meetings on the second Wednesday after the full county council meeting.

Cllr Joe Reilly proposed that the municipal meetings be held in Navan Town Hall for the moment. Last week’s meeting was held in Innovation House on Railway Street
