Plebiscites for directly elected mayors, with executive functions, will be held at the same time as the local elections, in respect of Cork City Council, Limerick City and County Council and Waterford City and County Council. Detailed proposals regarding the plebiscites, including the proposed functions of the mayor, will be submitted to Government for approval shortly and a public information campaign will be finalised and launched as soon as possible thereafter.
