Cllr Doyle, who was elected unopposed, was proposed by his party colleague Cllr Frank O’Flynn and seconded by Cllr Timmy Collins (Independent). In his acceptance speech Cllr Doyle congratulated Cllr Hurley on his election to the mayoral position. For his own part, he said he was proud and privileged to represent the people of North Cork and also to represent Cork County Council in the Municipal District of Fermoy.
He thanked his colleague Frank O’Flynn for proposing him as Deputy Mayor, Cllr Timmy Collins for seconding him, the Independent Group, Fine Gael, Labour and Sinn Fein, for supporting the proposal, and everybody in the chamber for their support and friendship over the past three years since his election in 2014, including the executive and council staff members.
Cllr Doyle pledged his support to Mayor Hurley in whatever capacity he is called on to perform over the duration of his tenure as Mayor. “Together we will promote Cork County Council and Cork County over the next twelve months,” he said. Present in the chamber to see him elected were his wife Angie and daughter Aoife.
