Funding for Six Tipperary Festivals

Funding has been allocated to six Festivals in Tipperary, Terryglass Arts Festival, Spleodar Festival in Nenagh, Feile Brian Boru in Ballina/Killaloe, Glen of Aherlow Festival, Rock of Cashel Festival and Clonmel Junction Festival. 

Committees across the country work extremely hard organising festivals, and I'm sure the allocation of funding will be very welcome to all involved.

Local festivals are central to the Government's plans to develop the tourism industry. 2014 was a great success for Irish tourism and regional festivals and events across the country played a big part in that success.     The festivals sector has shown remarkable resilience over the last few years, which shows the resourcefulness and skills of the people and communities involved in the festivals sector.

Lifetime Service Award for Billy Fitzpatrick


Congratulations to Nenagh's Billy Fitzpatrick who got a lifetime service award for his service to the Labour Party at our national conference this weekend. Billy is a great man and and good friend so I was so delighted to present him with his award. We had a few locals down to support him too! Also congratulations to Sean and Mary Doyle originally from Nenagh but now living in Dun Laoghaire who also received awards.

Congratulations Molly Sterling

I would like to congratulate Molly Sterling on winning Eurosong.

This is a huge achievement for a 16 year old to win this competition.   We are all very proud of Molly in Tipperary and will be behind her all the way. The very best of luck to Molly in the Eurovision in Vienna later this year.
Congratulations to her parents Rachel and Andrew, her grandmother Hilary and the extended Sterling and Henry families.

Roscrea Playground

I recently announced that works will take place at the Children's Playground, the Glebe, Roscrea.
I am delighted to announce that following representations to Tipperary County Council, work will take place at the Children's Playground at the Glebe in Roscrea. These works will include the repair of the swings, repair of part of the surface, the replacing of one piece of outdoor equipment and replacing of any missing parts of the equipment.  The work will take place in the coming weeks.
This is very welcome news for the children in the area who use the facilities at the playground.   I would like to thank Shane Lee for bringing this issue to my attention.
