At the recent meeting of Cashel Tipperary Municipal District Committee Cllr Tom Wood requested that “in recognition that the abolition of Town Councils was a mistake and with just 12 months remaining before the next local elections, this authority again calls on the relevant Minister, Department and Government to reinstate them as a means of promoting democracy at local level.”

Management responded: “subject to the agreement with the members, the District will arrange to write to the appropriate department.”
