Two-Mile-Borris Casino Could Become A Reality

Model of proposed Two-Mile-Borris Casino

Model of proposed Two-Mile-Borris Casino

The current FG/Labour Government is planning to introduce new legislation to allow small Casinos the right to operate in Ireland, but will continue to maintain the existing ban on Super Casinos.

Two restrictions will apply in this expected legislation, namely Size & Location. Size will be restricted by the number of tables that each Casino can install, thus possibly ruling out the Las Vegas-style Casino previously promoted by former Garda Richard Quirke, of Dr Quirkey’s Goodtime Emporium fame and supported by Michael Lowry TD here in Tipperary.

These, about to be published proposals, are understood to introduce new laws regulating all currently run gambling establishments and will require Casinos to contribute to a fund for gambling addiction treatment programmes and gambling awareness campaigns and could see the creation of a new post with the appointment of a Gambling Regulator.

Such introduced new legislation will be the first time that public Casinos, which currently exist in a legal vacuum, will be able to operate on a full legal basis here in Ireland and thus clear the way for a scaled down model of the Casino planned for Two-Mile-Borris, Thurles, Co Tipperary.

A public symposium designed to discuss exactly how big a Casino can actually grow is being planned by Minister for Justice, Equality and Defence, Alan Shatter TD, but this new legislation could revive the shelved Tipperary project.

    A Casino for gambling addiction and the country wrecked. It’ll be like the banks, one or two people gets all the money from the poor.
