Former Army Barracks in Clonmel to be signed over to County Council


Approval has been given to sign over the former Kickham army barracks in Clonmel to South Tipperary County Council.

The premises shut down in 2012 bringing 350 years of military presence in the town to an end.

The details of the deal will come before the county council and the formal signing over cermony is expected to take place in the next few weeks.

A new Garda District Headquarters to replace the current garda station in Clonmel is planned for the site.

The council also plans to develop a park on the grounds as well as education and training offices.
