At a recent meeting of Fianna Fáil, Mary Gallagher from the Laytown Bettystown cumann proposed a motion of gratitude to the retiring constituency delegate Henry (Harry) Arrowsmith from Dundalk.
Mary said: “People are not always aware of how much voluntary work is done by party members.” Harry held the two biggest jobs in the party locally. He was the constituency delegate to party headquarters for Louth east Meath. He also served as director of elections for the constituency.
Harry attended monthly comhairle ceantair meetings and individual cumann meetings throughout our Dáil district from the Cooley peninsula to Bettystown. All of this was done on his own time and at his own expense.
“I am particularly grateful for Harry’s door to door canvassing in east Meath during the last campaign” remarked Mary Gallagher.
Harry will be able to give more time to his architectural joinery business – Arrowsmith Timber Products Ltd. Harry founded the company in 1982. It specialises in the manufacture soft and hard wood products. The product range includes windows, traditional sash windows, doors, stairs, skirting, architrave, shop fronts and fittings
“There’s no doubt about it, when the party was at its lowest ebb, Harry was the last line of defence, our fullback” said John Kierans PRO.
