Council To Fund Development Designs For Two Projects In Tipp Town


There was good news for Tipperary town at today’s meeting of the Tipp Cahir Cashel Municipal District.

The council has agreed to fund the development of designs for two projects that were unsuccessful in a recent application made to the Rural Regeneration Development Fund operated by the Department of Rural and Community Development. 

The council will now fund designs in respect of redeveloping Dan Breen house as an education hub and a plan for the refurbishment of the Canon Hayes Recreation centre.

The announcement was made by District Manager Pat Slattery, who said that one million euros will be provided by the Council to progress the project to “shovel ready” status for submission for future funding streams.

The work will take the two projects to design and through the planning permission process. Cathaoirleach Mary Hanna Hourigan welcomed the announcement and said it was great to have the first meeting of 2022 end on such a positive note. 

The application for RRDF funding had also included an element at Tipperary Racecourse for an outdoor tourism experience – this  may be progressed using a Fáilte Ireland funding scheme.
