At last - some good news for the Greens!

It is nice to see a bit of good news in the Green camp so well done to
Green councillor Malcolm Noonan on his election as Mayor of Kilkenny

To say the local elections were rough for the Greens would be an
understatement. Yet with the handful of councillors who did manage to
escape the guillotine, it is nice to see one reach a high office.

Politics is a game of chance. It is a game of risk. You win some and
you lose some. The Greens have reached Ground Zero in terms of support
on local and city councils but - being optimistic - the only way is up
for them.

Mayor Noonan is the first Green Mayor of Kilkenny and what a year it
will be as 2009 celebrates the 400th anniversary of the granting of
city status by King James, no less.
