St Mary's Community Centre

Edgeworthstown's St Mary's Community Centre has won the tender to host the 2019 local elections

Next month's local elections will be decided at St Mary's Community Centre in Edgeworthstown.

The state of the art facility which opened its doors in 2015 has secured the tender for the upcoming count on May 25 following the culmination of a recent procurement process.

It means the count will switch from its previous venue in Newtownforbes of five years earlier.

Local councillor Paul Ross expressed his delight over the announcement.

"This is the first time ever that Edgeworthstown will host the count and great credit must go to the committee in being successful in attracting the event to the town,” he said.

The closing date for would be local election candidates is May 4 at 12 noon.
