The people of Clonmel and surrounding areas are outraged at the fact that the Department of Defence have placed an advert in this week’s Nationalist seeking a premises in Clonmel Town to accommodate the Reserve Defence Force Training following their decision to close Kickham Barracks, according to South Tipperary Independent TD Mattie McGrath.

“This is absolutely outrageous, the Government have decided to close the Barracks and now they turn around, before the Barracks has even been closed to look for accommodation for the RDF. They had perfectly good accommodation which they chose to close and now they are adding insult to injury by seeking new accommodation to rent” said McGrath.
