Chairman of Cahir Tidy Towns and Enhancement Group Andy Moloney has hit out at the winding down of the Cahir Area Office and its move to Clonmel.

“This is another blow to the area as their base in the Erasmus Smith House is an outstanding building designed by John Nash who is associated with many other buildings in the town. It has been of great service to locals and our own group over the years as it’s a hands on facility and the staff have always been courteous and knowledgeable to the area.”

Mr Moloney criticised a decision of the car licensing authority to move from the motor tax office in Clonmel to a private rented unit in Powerstown when the Cahir Area office could have been the headquarters. This would have been an ideal location especially due to the close proximity to the Motorway.

“The whole system stinks,” as far as he is concerned.
