CARLOW Co Council has received funding to support activities to increase the number of female and diverse candidates and councillors running in the 2024 local elections.

The local authority received €11,500 in funding to increase participation.

“There is a significant under-representation of women and people of diversity in local government and it’s imperative to address that imbalance,” said deputy Murnane O’Connor.

“We must support our councils to be more reflective of the breadth and diversity of the communities they serve,” she added.

“As the local elections in 2024 loom closer, now is the time for us all to redouble our efforts in making the role of the councillor more accessible and sustainable for all,” said deputy Murnane O’Connor.
