Appointments to the Veterinary Council of Ireland

The Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Michael Creed TD yesterday announced the appointment of four members to the Veterinary Council of Ireland.

The persons appointed are: 

  • Claire Millrine
  • Áilís ní Riain
  • John O’Brien
  • Bert Stewart

Welcoming the newly appointed members, the Minister said,

“An effective board depends on achieving the right mix of people and skills.  The varied range of skills and experience of these new appointees will benefit the Veterinary Council through robust discussion leading to strong decision making.  I wish them every success during their term of office.”

Notes for the Editor

The four appointed members were selected under the arrangements involving an open advertisement and assessment system by the Public Appointments Service (PAS). PAS, established under statute in 2004, provides an independent shared service in recruitment, assessment and selection to organizations across the Civil and Public Services. On 30 September 2014, the Government decided that PAS should also be given responsibility for putting in place an open, accessible, rigorous and transparent system to support Ministers in making appointments to State Boards.
