Welcoming these funding allocations, Independent North Tipperary Deputy Michael Lowry speaking to Thurles.Info stated:

“Investment in the Tipperary agri-food sector is vital for the development of our local economy. Tipperary is rightly proud of its reputation as a top quality food producer for both the Irish and export markets. This funding will go towards the further enhancement of  Tipperary’s  superior food producing reputation and ensure that local enterprises in this sector continue  to flourish.  The investment in the three Tipperary Marts is particularly pleasing as the Mart still remains at the core of agricultural life in the county.”
