Independent Cork county councillor, Frank Roche is a hard man to keep down.

Up against it in the most recent local elections, the Castletownroche native posted an online video that he credits with helping him secure his seat. 

“It was a kind of last minute thing, but I went for it. The interest it generated was unreal, people are still contacting me about it, it was great at the time, but I think people should forget about it now,” says Frank. 

A man with a life-long interest in politics, it was no surprise he turned up in Mallow GAA Complex for last Sunday’s count.
