    Thurles:- Such a load of bullshit. More money for another plan. Are we total fools altogether. So what is being said is draw up another plan but there will be no funding for anything in Thurles. Are all the people of Thurles total fools. Of course don’t think for a minute our local deputy got this money for the county. Not at all he is just advising the people that money has been allotted.

    Note all funding is being handed over to Tipperary Co. Council. This is the same Council, through its senior engineers, that has killed off the towns valuable voluntary workforce, by refusing the necessary small amounts of funding necessary to make changes. The excuses include “No Insurance Cover”; “We Can’t Make A decision At This Time”, “Ah We Couldn’t Envisage That”, “No funding Available”, etc, etc, etc. Look at Thurles Tidy Towns as an example. People are beyond caring about the filthy state of the River Suir, and even Tidy Towns judges appear to not get out of their transport vehicles any more; but granting their customary 5 extra marks each year, instead of critically reducing our marks; as we sink ourselves further into the mire.

    Look at Thurles [Catergory E] marks over the last 5 years:-
    2014 Thurles 273.
    2015 Thurles 280.
    2016 Thurles 285.
    2017 Thurles 293.
    2018 Thurles 298.
    And now we are holding a public meeting in the hope of providing a Thurles to Clonmel Greenway, when our local river stinks to high heaven and we can’t fill a pothole in our main streets. Tourists are now going to flock to Thurles as a direct result, and they are all coming on bicycles.

    Well said to both of you. These are the comments that should be on the front page of the Tipperary Star. Elected representatives and County Council employees are paid (including handsome pensions) by taxpayers to do their jobs. The impression on funding announcements is that the towns are getting favourable treatment. It is we that are the fools to put up with patronising nonsense.

    I don’t know what to say
