Councillor James O’Sullivan P.C. was appointed a Peace Commissioner for County Wicklow (and the adjoining counties of Dublin, Kildare, Carlow and Wexford) in July 2012 by the Minister for Justice, Alan Shatter TD.

“I envisage that my role as a Peace Commissioner in County Wicklow will further enhance the role I play in communities throughout North Wicklow. I will undertake the duties of this appointment with the utmost integrity and I am very much looking forward to assisting my constituents in Greystones, Delgany, Kilcoole and Newcastle in this position”, stated Councillor O’Sullivan.
