Update On Failure By Thurles Councillors To Reply To Local Queries

In the Interests of Transparency, Truth and Honesty

Today we learned that information previously confirmed by those operating the switchboard in the Tipperary Co. Council office reception is somewhat outdated. We learn that the post of Ethics Registrar has been re-assigned to Mr. David Coleman, Administrative Officer, Corporate Services, since June 1st 2020 last.

In a prompt email message sent today from Mr Ger Walsh (Former Ethics Registrar and Senior Executive Officer), we learn the following information

Dear George,

I refer to your email of 8th September 2020, the contents of which are noted.

For your information, the position of Ethics Registrar has been re-assigned to Mr. David Coleman, Administrative Officer, Corporate Services for the period 1st June 2020 until 31st May 2022 as no person can perform the functions of Ethics Registrar for a continuous period, exceeding 2 years, in accordance with Sections 173 and Section 174 of the Local Government Act 2001.

I have referred a copy of your email to David for his consideration and direct reply to you in due course.

Mise le Meas,
Ger Walsh

In my reply to Mr Walsh I stated:

Attention of Mr Ger Walsh (Senior Executive Officer)

Sir,
Thank you for your prompt reply.
Information supplied in your email is duly noted.

My thanks,

Yours sincerely,
George Willoughby.

We now await a further reply from Mr David Coleman (Current Ethics Registrar). We also await replies from:- Lowry Team, other locally elected representatives and all Tipperary Co. Co. officials at the very highest level of local government; all involved in a deliberate attempt to frustrate and make information sought by their paymasters; obscure, unclear, or unintelligible, while ignoring an established Code of Conduct, under the Local Government Act of 2001.

    At last – a reply – some progress……….as someone watching from afar I sympathise in your efforts – in this case trying to get answers and explanations from our elected representatives – you should be thanked and commended for trying to bring these people to book.
    They need to be constantly reminded that they are here to serve us!!!!!

    Certainly, this will be a test case to see if councillors ‘Code of Conduct’, expressed in the ‘Local Government Act of 2001’ actually works. What is disappointing is the level of behaviour tolerated at the very highest echelons of officialdom within Tipperary Co. Council. It may now be necessary to bring this case to national attention, and to this end in the coming weeks a few favours may need to be called in. Thank you.
