Ballymore woman is new PC

A young Ballymore woman has been appointed as a Peace Commissioner for Kildare and surrounding counties.

She is Evie Sammon, chairperson of Kildare Young Fine Gael, a graduate of the University of Limerick in Politics & International Relations. Her earlier education was at St Mary's College in Naas.

Ms Sammon also serves on the United States Embassy Youth Council.

Peace Commissioner is an honorary position in Ireland with special powers and whose role is to primarily take statutory declarations, witness signatures on documents required by various authorities, signing certificates, and orders under various acts of the Oireachtas.

Ms Sammon describes it as a 'huge honour' to be appointed to the position by the Minister for Justice and Equality. "I look forward to helping those who are in need of assistance and to serving my community," she said in a statement issued yesterday.
