County Council housing officer Ger Walsh is to be the new town clerk with Clonmel Borough Council.
At Monday’s meeting of the County Council, Chairman Michael Fitzgerald wished Mr Walsh the “best of luck” in his new role.
“Ger’s direct approach, sense of fair play and common sense approach will serve him well in the Borough Council. Our loss in the county is the borough council’s gain.”
Mr Walsh’s position in the Housing Department at the County Council will be filled by Aidan Fennessy, who is moving from the water services area.
