As previously sanctioned by Tipperary Co. Council, the old Thurles Library building will soon become the new administrative offices of the Templemore / Thurles Municipal District Council, with work expected to be fully completed by the end of 2016. The signing of this contract will now see the full commencement of building works; beginning with immediate effect.
No decision as yet has been made as to the disposal of the present Municipal District Council Office, situated on Slievenamon Road in Thurles, latter which, due to limited office administrative space, has now outlived its current usefulness.
Romanian native and Tipperary resident Anton Banaghan, certainly wowed judges Simon Cowell, Nick Grimshaw, plus lovelies Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Rita Ora on last night’s X Factor, with his impressive rendition of George Ezra’s ‘Budapest’.
The 21-year-old Anton, who moved here to Ireland with his adopted family, received four unanimous ‘Yes’ thumbs up’s from the judging panel after he performed last night on the final audition show of the 2015 X Factor season.
“I’m from County Tipperary and I am a part time bar man. I work in a local pub and they have open ‘mic nights’ where I get up on stage and entertain the locals,” he told the panel
“I have only been singing for about three years. I have not had any lessons. Singing makes me happy and I feel something that you can’t explain sometimes. My dream is to sell records, that’s what I want to do,” he continued.
All fingers will be crossed here in Tipperary for Anton tonight, in the hope that he will be among those selected to make it to the X Factor Bootcamp, under the ‘Boys’ category.
The televised programme goes out on TV3 tonight at 8:00pm.
Go Anton Banaghan, certainly the gorgeous Cheryl Fernandez-Versini is in your corner.
