Cork North West TD, Michael Creed has welcomed the decision to hold the referendum count for Cork County in Colaiste Choilm, Ballincollig on October 5th. Commenting on the decision Deputy Creed said:
“It is correct and proper that the forthcoming referendum counts for Cork County will be held in the County, and not within the City boundaries as was proposed. Colaiste Choilm Ballincollig is the ideal venue to host the count on October 5th as it is easily accessible for Council staff carrying out the count and voters who may wish to witness the count”.
“I warmly welcome this decision and hope that Ballincollig can become the permanent venue for future referendum counts”.
