Slieve Gullion DEA forum will aim to highlight and address the many needs and requirements of the area, including Health and Wellbeing, Education and Employment, Infrastructure and Community Safety. The Forum will meet bi-monthly, with every second meeting being open to the public. There will be a full time officer employed to work within the DEA, with Crossmaglen Community Centre ear-marked as the officer’s headquarters. Barra Ó Muirí thanked his fellow Slieve Gullion Councillors for their confidence in him, assuring all in the room of his intention to ensure that every citizen in the Slieve Gullion DEA would benefit from the work of the Forum. “Slieve Gullion councillors have always worked hard to best represent the wishes of the electorate. It is not always easy for people to see the work of a councillor and it is hoped that through the public meetings our electorate can see at first hand the workings of this forum,” he said. Councillor Ó Muirí revealed that the Slieve Gullion Councillors and officers would undertake a “tour” of the DEA, visiting Community Groups and Centres throughout the Slieve Gullion DEA. He revealed also that the forum plans hold their meetings in Community Centres across the DEA.
