The cabinet has approved the drafting of legislation to allow for a directly elected mayor in Limerick.

The legislation is to be advanced as quickly as possible, with the aim of holding an election by the end of this year.


In a statement, the Department of Local Government says the first mayoral term will run until the local elections of 2029.

From then the role would revert to a five-year term.

The mayor will have a salary of 130,000 euro in line with a Junior Minister.

They will have responsibility for most of the executive functions currently carried out by the Chief Executive, including, at a strategic and policy level, in the areas of:

  • housing and building
  • road transport and safety
  • water services
  • strategic management
  • environmental services
  • recreation and amenity
  • agriculture, education, health
