LIMERICK City and County Council has welcomed a new Communications Officer to its Active Travel team. Terry Brennan joined the Council in July after almost two decades working as a journalist in both the UK and Ireland. The Active Travel team, with funding from the National Transport Authority, will transform Limerick’s cycling and walking network over the coming years. As Communications Officer, Terry will promote the rollout of Active Travel projects across the city and county. Terry’s role is one of 24 positions allocated by the NTA to the Active Travel team in Limerick.
Terry spent much of his career with ITV Regional News where he was a producer and Head of News in a number of ITV regions. After relocating home to Ireland, he worked for Cork’s 96FM as editor of the station’s mid-morning talk show before taking up his new role with Limerick City and County Council.
Terry said: “It’s a really exciting time to be joining the Active Travel team. We’re already starting to see some of the benefits of the investment in sustainable transport modes in Limerick and we have so much more planned in the months and years ahead. I can’t wait to get stuck in and start sharing this story with the people of Limerick.”
