Cllr. Michael Smyth

Councillor on Mayo County Council

Meet Michael

I was born and raised in Swinford and went to school in St Louis in Kiltimagh, Co. Mayo. I was commissioned as an Army Officer in the Irish Defence Forces in 1993 and retired in 2003 after 10 years of service. I served overseas in South Lebanon and as a United Nations Military Observer in a multi-national force in East Timor.

I qualified as a solicitor in 2005 and worked in a local firm in Swinford since 2004. I recently set up in partnership with another solicitor when we purchased the well-established firm of F.G Phelan & Company in Swinford. I am a keen sportsman and I have represented my county playing Gaelic football at Minor, Under 21, Junior and Senior Levels. I also play, basketball, squash and golf. My other interests include travelling, reading, fishing and cinema.
