Fianna Fail's Niall Collins has told Tipperary Mid West Radio that his party remains committed to upholding the confidence and supply agreement with Fine Gael.

Speaking after Enda Kenny yesterday announced his decision to step down as FG leader, Deputy Collins said that as a party, FF remains committed to what is contained within that agreement, which he notes was drawn up between parties and not individuals.

His remarks also came in the wake of comments made by party colleague Willie O’Dea yesterday when he suggested that his party review the agreement before agreeing to facilitate the election of a new FG Taoiseach.

The owners of the Sky Innovation Park in Tipperary town are due to apply for planning permission to Tipperary County Council on Friday.

The application, by Corajio, is to allow the company to change the use of the site from retail to innovation and industry.

The decision was made upon a recommendation by the IDA, who said that it would offer the site the best chance of creating employment in Tipperary town.

Labour TD Alan Kelly who facilitated the talks between the company, the IDA, Enterprise Ireland and Tipperary County Council has described the latest move as ‘the next step in this exciting opportunity for Tipperary town and its environs’.

After the planning stage, Corajio will commence work on developing the site and making it fit for visits by potential clients sourced by the IDA and Enterprise Ireland.

At that point, claims Deputy Kelly, ‘the agencies will have a site that they can market’.

The CEO of the Citizens Information Board has said that people who avail of the services of the Money Advice and Budgeting Service and the Citizens Information Services will not be affected by a planned reduction in the number of boards running the two organisations.

Angela Black was speaking about a decision to cut the number of boards operating the services from 93 to 16.

Meetings on the matter are taking place across the country with one being held tomorrow at Ballykisteen Hotel.

She says the decision has been made to make the service more efficient and will improve the overall running of the service - not take away from it.  No jobs will be lost, she says, and no services will be affected.
