A meeting is taking place in the Excel Centre this evening focussing on issues affecting local water courses and ways in which the public would like to see rivers, lakes and streams used and promoted.

The meeting is being held by the Local Authority Waters and Communities Office.  Its purpose is to engage the community about their local water courses.  The information gleaned from the public would be used to form the River Basin Management Plan for 2018 to 2021.

The meeting takes place in the Excel Centre in Tipperary town at 7.30pm.

The forum will take place in Clonmel tomorrow evening at the same time and in Fethard at 7.30pm on Tuesday, June 27th.

A Tipperary firm has made it to the finals of the Irish Times Innovation Awards 2017.

Thurles-based company Utillix is among the 21 finalists from established companies, innovators and start-ups which have been nominated.
There are seven categories in total and Utillix has been nominated in the Energy & The Environment category.

Set up in Australia by Tipp native Oliver Morrissey, it has been described as the ‘Google Maps of the underground’. Its app offers construction workers a vision of what’s underneath the ground before they begin to dig, avoiding dangerous and costly accidents.

The winners will be announced at a high profile awards ceremony in early October in Dublin.
