McGrath Claims Unfair Unification Process


Independent TD Mattie McGrath has said that there is an unfair bais towards North Tipperary in the process of establishing a unified county council.

The Tipperary Reorganisation Implementation Group, which has been set up to establish an amalgamated council is chaired by the current manager of North Tipperary County Council, Joe McGrath.

Deputy McGrath has said the committee should be completely independent so that any decision made would not favour one council area over another.

He is calling for the Minister for the Environment to reconsider the formation of the group to ensure it is ‘completely independent and unbiased’.
