Public Representation on Civil Registration Department successful.
A definite date for the resumption of services at the now closed Civil Registration Office in Thurles, has at last been confirmed.
This response follows strong ongoing representations by Deputy Michael Lowry on this issue, which was being interpreted by the public in the greater Thurles area, as yet a further lessening of already diminishing rural services.
In a letter addressed yesterday to Deputy Michael Lowry from Mr Bernard Gloster; latter Chief Officer, HSE Mid West Community Healthcare, it has now been confirmed that the Civil Registration Office will re-open to the public on Monday 15th May, 2017, operating on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
The public will now be able to resume using St Mary’s Health Centre in Castlemeadows, Thurles, to obtain birth, death and marriage certificates.
Correspondence to Mr Lowry reads:-
