Irelands First Black Mayor

Ireland just elected it's first black mayor. Rotimi Adebari is originally from Nigeria and now lives Portlaoise. Granted the method of electing mayors is a little strange with county councellors rotating the position between them but its still cool that we have finally elected a black person as mayor. I'm more surprised that it took until 2007.

Well he wasn't black obviously but what nationality was Mark Kahn? Wasn't he the mayor of some little village on the south coast a few years ago. I met him the other day, but he was on the phone and couldn't stop :)
