The Directors of Donegal Town Community Chamber CLG have decided to extend the term of Office of Donegal Town Mayor Pauric Kennedy until further notice.

Mr Kennedy is well known for his community work in Donegal Town. His many activities include Donegal Town Community Band, the St Patrick's Day Parade, Cycle Against Suicide, and many more. He is a popular mayor, known for his compassionate and hands-on approach and always the first to roll up his sleeves if there is work to be done.

The election for position of honorary mayor would have been due to take place this October.
