Foreword from the Cathaoirleach Councillor Siobhán Ambrose

A Chairde,

I am delighted to have been elected as the third Cathaoirleach of Tipperary County Council. It is indeed a great honour for me as I am the first female to hold this position within our newly amalgamated County.

Tipperary is now the 6th largest County in the Country. It has a population of 160,000 and borders eight Counties. This new structure offers many opportunities. During my term of office I hope to promote to perspective investors the benefits of investing in Tipperary. I will also continue to promote the importance of shopping local in order to support and grow our retail and indigenous sector. This year I also hope that progress can be made on developing the Kickham Barracks site in Clonmel which the Council has purchased and in which it is proposed to accommodate the re-location of the L.I.T. College, the Education and Training Board and the new Garda Station.

Since January Tipperary County Council has been very active in running events commemorating the 1916 Rising such as the " Road to the Rising" exhibition in the Museum and a series of lectures. There are several other events planned before the end of the year which I look forward to supporting during my term of office." Green be their graves and green their memory" (Pearse).

In conclusion, I look forward to working with the Management, Staff and Members of the Council in ensuring that our wonderful County continues to grow and develop thus offering greater opportunities to all of our Citizen's at home and abroad.
