Looking ahead to his term in office, Peter aims to ensure that the local retailer gets the recognition from our government for the key role that they play in our local community and the overall economy.

Peter aims to lift our status and not just be seen as a small local shop, but to be seen for what we are, the biggest employers in Ireland and a foundation on which communities are built, stating “too often though we are taken for granted especially by our Government who are happy to burden us with extra costs and bureaucracy and still expect us to be there when the hard times come around again.”

If you would like to make representation to the National President on key issues of concern or if you have any suggestions as to how CSNA can best serve its valued members, please send your comments FAO National President to info@csna.ie or call 045 535050.
