Major Disruption to Thurles With IFA Protest

tipp-farmingThurles town traffic is expected to be seriously delayed by next Monday’s intended IFA nationwide protest.

The Thurles protest will assemble on Racecourse Road and turn right at the Tipperary Institute Roundabout, crossing over the railway bridge on the Nenagh Road, progressing left onto Cuchulainn Road and turning right into O’Donovan Rossa St, before entering Liberty Square.

The protest will continue over the Suir Bridge into Cathedral Street, before turning right at the Dublin road roundabout and back again through the Square, exiting via Friar Street.

The protest convoy will then cross over the railway bridge beyond Bowe’s corner, straight to the next roundabout opposite Lidl Supermarket and will turn right towards the back of Semple Stadium, before dispersing.

Similar disruptions are expected in Clonmel Co. Tipperary from 11.30am and both protests are expected to delay normal traffic movement for up to one hour.

This protest will involve at least twenty eight tractorcades right across the country to further highlight Government cuts and their continued effects on farm families and the rural economy.
