Michael Gleeson-South Kerry Independent Alliance (SKIA) 1999 LE. December 16, 2009


All Ireland Medal winner Michael Gleeson of SKIA from the 1999 local elections.

In 1999 he wanted to abolish holy hour on a Sunday

There were issues around potential conflicts of Interests of councillors. Hence “I Have no vested interest in any property in Killarney”.
As a tourist attraction, Michael Gleeson also wanted a GAA Museum in Killarney (I suppose the rest of the country needs to be reminded how good Kerry are at the football, even on holidays).
Lots more here besides.
