Future of Tipperary Courthouse


Tipperary Town Council is continuing in its quest to retain courthouse services in the town since its St. Michael Street premises was deemed unfit for purpose.

At this week’s meeting of the council, it was suggested that the possibility of the new civic offices or Dan Breen House, when vacated, could be used for the purpose.

However, while not opposed to the idea, town manager Claire Curley said that the fight to get the courthouse back up to scratch should be maintained and that pressure should continue to be applied to the Minister for Justice for a meeting with a deputation from the town and county councils.

Meanwhile, when asked where a €100,000 grant for some works to the building had gone, the council was informed that the drawdown was the responsibility of the county council and that the local authority would be contacted about it.
