Contract Dispute At North Tipperary College

Borrisokane-ccA number of windows and doors are understood to have been removed from Borrisokane Community College in North Tipperary last evening, by a sub contractor who carried out work on the college’s new €10 million extension.

The sub-contractor, who is understood to have taken the law into his own hands, maintains he has not been paid in full for work undertaken on this new building project.

A Co Galway based contractor, J.J. Rhatigan and Company, principal contractor hired to construct this new €10 million extension, claim they were not involved in any removal and further claim that the sub – contractor was already paid a considerable amount of the value of his contract.  The main contractor also makes the claims that he had not received any correspondence from the sub-contractor involved, regarding issues of payment.

Major funding for the upgrading of this school, which had been sought for many years, had provided a new state of the art modern building which included an Autism Unit to cater for the needs of students diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Disorders.

An open day for both students and parents was due to take place on Sunday next, with the school due to open fully next week.
