Leo Varadkar To Visit Roscrea

Leo Varadkar to visit Tipperary North

With Election Day looming closer than ever our local Fine Gael TD Noel Coonan has announced that he is holding his final rally in the Muintir na Tire Hall, Roscrea, this Friday night at 9.00pm.

Deputy Leo Varadkar will be the guest speaker on the night and all are welcome to come along for one last drive, to demonstrate their support and hear how Fine Gael intend to revitalise the constituency of North Tipperary and South Offaly, which have been decimated under the outgoing government and its supporters.

Speaking to Thurles Information this morning, Deputy Noel Coonan stated:

Fine Gael will most likely be in Government, following the upcoming election and I cannot stress enough, how important it is that a constituency as large as ours retains its Fine Gael Deputy to represent it in Dáil Eireann. It is absolutely crucial that we keep our Fine Gael seat and that is why people are encouraged to vote “No. 1 Coonan, Noel.”
Deputy Leo Varadkar has kindly agreed to travel from Dublin to address the meeting and reiterate Fine Gael’s numerous comprehensive and costed policy plans that will help pull us out of our economic doldrums.
I’m looking forward to an enthusiastic attendance on Friday night in Roscrea similar to the hugely impressive crowds that attended our previous campaign meetings and selection convention in Thurles. I have been greatly encouraged by the level of support shown to date for Fine Gael in North Tipperary and South Offaly and I’ve no doubt that the public have seen the light and realise that this Government, supported by Independents, are now dead in the water.

Deputy Coonan also warmly welcomed the good news that construction is to start this September on Borrisokane’s Day Care Centre. The local Fine Gael TD has been relentlessly pressing the Minister for Health for this project, which is to commence as a matter of priority and is “thankful that the persistence has finally paid off.

The Deputy stated: “Mr. Brian Gilroy, Director of Estates in the HSE informed me that the project will go to tender by end of July 2011 with construction to start in September 2011 and an anticipated completion date before end of June 2012.
The procurement process for the design team has been completed and contract documents have been issued to the design team for formal appointment.  The first project meeting with the design team took place at the end of January and the expectation is that a planning permission application will be lodged before the end of March 2011. Following that, the project will go to tender by end of July 2011.
I wish to again acknowledge the vital role played by the Borrisokane action committee in continuously pushing for the progression of this important facility and for displaying patience during the many dark days after the false dawn. As the only local Opposition TD, I was happy to work with the committee to keep the project alive
.”

Deputy Coonan concluded by saying: “This day care centre will thankfully take pressure off the Hospital of the Assumption, Thurles and the Dean Maxwell Home, Roscrea, where there is a large demand for residency.
