Thurles Traders Unite Task Force Update

Liberty Square

The first Task Force meeting of the Thurles Traders Unite committee took place in “The Commercial Room,” in Hayes Hotel, Liberty Square, last evening. (26th October at 6pm.)

Reports, immediately following, state that the meeting was both positive and informative, with a delegation elected  to meet with Thurles Town Council Executive and local Councillors on Monday 7th November at 6.30pm, at their Slievenamon offices. The Traders Unite Task Force will again meet in Hayes Hotel on Monday 7th November at 7.15pm, following on from this meeting with Thurles Town Council Officials, to further discuss the progress made by this deputation.

Issues discussed at Wednesday evenings meeting, raised many questions and suggestion in relation to:- Parking, Traffic Management, Tourism and charges regarding present Commercial Rates to local traders.

A review of a planned “Group Advertising Package,” for the town were discussed and planned at length, and a leaflet, containing up to date costs and information on this subject, will now be delivered to all traders on Thurles high streets, in the coming week.

A motion was passed at the meeting, offering every assistance and support to the upcoming Thurles Christmas Market on 11th December next. All shops will be open in Thurles on that day, and all offering customers some very attractive deals.

    Thurles seem to be coming out of a deep sleep at last and is starting to look alive. Get cracking now while you are awake.

    We are Students at Colaiste Eile, Thurles and having watched Local Heros on TV last night we thought it would be interesting to try and link up with Thurles Traders Unite and see if you are interested in meeting up with us to discuss what advantage setting up someting similiar in Thurles would be to Traders.
    We tried contacting Chamber of Commerce but could not get in touch with anyone in their Office,or by email.
