Cllr Rob out with the Easter eggs

Well, it's a fresh way of keeping in touch with your constituents, but Cllr Rob Power has two generations of personal politicking in his genes, writes Brian Byrne.

So he was outside Kilcullen Parish Church this morning, offering little Easter eggs to those of a sweet-tooth persuasion, and hand-delivering his latest update letter.

He did promise prior to being elected that he'd keep in touch, by more than just clinics. So the letter details his involvement in a number of issues over the last year.

These include the lights in Cnoc na Greine, the resurfacing of Main Street, dangerous parking at Hillcrest, the footpath from Athy Road through the Community Centre campus, and an increased Tidy Towns grant to Kilcullen. There's also a prospect of outdoor gym facilities in Kilcullen which he's working on.

Throughout, he does give credit to his fellow councillors of the Naas MD for supporting these matters.

(Fianna Fail have not yet selected their panel of candidates in Kildare South for the next General Election, but Cllr Fiona O’Loughlin intends to contest the Fianna Fail selection convention, as well as Deputy Sean O Fearghaill, so one wonders will Rob throw his hat in too? With grandfather Paddy and father Sean both having served in the Dail, there's certainly the prospect of a dynasty dividend.)
