Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate
Local Authority Boundaries
The situation is obvious. Decisions the Minister of State has taken have damaged and further damage Clonmel and Cahir and they continue the serious damage done to the town of Clonmel during the term of the previous Government. The decisions they have taken are unbalanced. The moving of Cahir to Tipperary and Cashel in this respect is completely without justification. There is no connection between the two areas. Cahir was always related to Clonmel. The only adequate way to represent towns is to re-establish boroughs and town councils, and the Minister of State should do that immediately.
