Tributes are being paid to former Sligo Fine Gael Councillor Paul Conmy from Culleens who passed away yesterday.
He was elected to Sligo County Council in the Dromore area in 1979 and held his seat until 2009.
The Cathaoirleach of Sligo County Council Dara Mulvey says Paul Conmy was "a dedicated public representative who gave a lifetime of service to his community."
He says Paul worked tirelessly alongside the people of West Sligo for many years, and was widely respected by his fellow elected Councillors.
The Cathaoirleach extended his sympathies to Mr Conmy's wife Breda and family.
Mr Conmy's Funeral Mass will take place on Saturday at 1.30pm in the Church of the Holy Family, Kilglass with burial afterwards in St Patrick's Cemetery, Kilglass.
