Councillor Eamonn O'Brien
Tell us your thoughts

Hello everyone,

I'm Eamonn O'Brien, councillor for St Mary's ward in Prestwich, and it's an honour for me to be the leader of Bury Council.

I was born here, educated here, and have lived here all my life. That's how I know that this is a great place in which to live, work and study, and I will do everything I can to ensure it continues to be so.

The coronavirus crisis has shown us just how important teamwork is, and I will be working with all our partners - in health and public services, with businesses, and with volunteers and community groups - to take on the challenges ahead and make Bury prosper and flourish.
