Sinn Fein Councillor Seamus Morris has today said that the problem he finds within the local Sinn Fein organisation is to be found at many of the party’s other local organisations across the country.

Cllr Morris was speaking about the ongoing issues within the party’s Tipperary organisation after he was issued with a letter by the Comhairle Ceanntair in which he was informed that they had voted to expel him.  He was further urged to align himself with a grouping in a neighbouring county.

This morning he said that despite that demand, he will remain within the local organisation to save it from what he refers to as ‘rogue elements’ within it.

He went on to say that these 'elements' within the Tipperary organisation are resisting change and are damaging the party.  Similar problems, he added, are being experienced in Sinn Fein Cummain and Comhairle Ceanntair across the country.

A new method of paying for parking has gone live in towns across the county today.

The eParking Service was launched in Clonmel this morning and applies for parking in each of the nine towns in Tipperary that currently have pay parking, including Tipperary town.

The new system involves downloading the Tipperary eParking App.  Then, by pre-purchasing credit for the app, motorists and visitors can use it to select the zone, the amount of time they want to pay for, and ensure parking is paid for.

The new system will also allow people to extend their parking time without the need to go back to their car.

The new app is available to download via the App Store or Google Play.

More details are available on
