Sponsored: Election profile – Joe Pond, Fianna Fáil



I GREW up in Annacotty Village and still live in the village with my wife. I went to Lisnagry National School and the CBS Secondary School in Limerick City.


In addition to my role as a local Councillor I work as the caretaker in Milford National School, a role I really enjoy. I am very heavily involved in community activities. I am the chairperson the local Community Text Alert system, I am the coordinator of the Senior Alert System for the Annacotty, Castletroy, Lisnagry and Monaleen areas and I have been the secretary of the local soccer club, Aisling Annacotty AFC for almost twenty years now.


Achieve if Elected

  • A greater Garda presence in all areas to combat the anti-social behaviour and crime. I will continue to campaign for a Garda Station in Castletroy.
  • The continued development of the road infrastructure- including re-surfacing, footpaths/cycleways, street lighting and traffic calming measures.
  • Additional funding for affordable and social housing-including funding for refurbishment of vacant property.
  • Community resources including a new park in Castletroy and the Castletroy greenway.
  • A bus service suitable for all users in our area including a more frequent service to Annacotty and Castleconnell.
