It has emerged that 25 administration staff at the Dept of Agriculture Offices in Tipperary are to be redeployed elsewhere.

Tipperary Mid West Radio has been informed that the 25 staff members will be redeployed to a new branch of the Garda vetting office at the Dept of Justice Offices in Tipperary Town.

Staff are said to be upset at the news and there are now concerns that the decision which is yet to be officially announced will mean that from the date of redeployment, there will no longer be an office open to take the queries of farmers.

There are around 60 people based at the DVO offices on Davis Street in Tipperary Town
