Following progress of the Local Government Bill 2018 through the Houses of the Oireachtas, the Bill provides for plebiscites on directly elected mayors with executive functions in the local authority areas of Cork City Council, Limerick City and County Council, and Waterford City and County Council. It is intended that the plebiscites will be held at the same time as the local elections in May. The Bill was enacted on 25 January 2019.
