Your Council Day 2023

Your Council Day 2023

The vital work of Sligo County Council employees and the role they play in our county’s social and economic life is being highlighted on ‘Your Council Day’, which takes place on Friday 23rd June.

Local authorities provide thousands of services with the aim of making great places in which to live, work and invest.  Across social media, #YourCouncilDay will showcase the work of our committed and passionate local authority employees who are working to make a difference to the lives of the people in their community.

Cathaoirleach Councillor Gerard Mullaney said

“Sligo County Council plays a key role in the physical, cultural, social and environmental development of our communities”

Chief Executive Martin Lydon added

“From the things you might commonly associate with councils like roads or housing, to other areas like community development, heritage, the arts, tourism, environment, Sligo County Council is working for everyone.  Our employees are at the heart of what we do and on Your Council Day, we are celebrating the innovative ways they serve their community and aiming to make sure that the public are aware of the services available to them.”

On Your Council Day local authorities including Sligo County Council will provide a ‘behind the scenes’ look at a typical day in the council to show the public the variety of services their council provides.

Social media users are encouraged to follow their local authority on social media or share their experiences of council initiatives using the hashtag #YourCouncilDay / #DoLásaChomhairle.
