Tipperary’s archives illustrate the importance of fairs and markets to the local economy, and the impact on them of the imposition of Martial Law in the aftermath of Soloheadbeg. This caused havoc for trade in the county, as is documented in the Minute Books of its Local Government authorities. The records of Tipperary Urban District Council and the Fethard Town Commissioners provide an overview of the situation, which had begun to worsen by March 1919...

Tipperary Urban District was particularly badly hit. At a Special Meeting on 27th March the following resolution was unanimously adopted ‘that we believe that the only result of the continuance of martial law is to produce a rebellious spirit amongst the citizens, and to make municipal government impossible by inflicting an unbearable burden on the ratepayers’. By the 2nd June it is reported that under Martial Law ‘the licensed grocers could not open their houses before eleven o’clock in the day, and had to close at four o’clock in the afternoon’. A Mr. R.J. Crowe feels that ‘we are being very badly victimised in the town of Tipperary... In Clonmel and Cahir they have long ago got the restrictions off’. A Mr. O’Connell agrees ‘Tipperary is being victimised, while in Limerick and Clonmel the restrictions are off... There is something rotten in the state of Denmark!’ The meeting resolves to send representation to Dublin. After this deputation meets with Mr. James MacMahon, Under Secretary for Ireland, it is reported on the 14th June that ‘Martial Law ends in Tipperary’ and a public notice appears with notification that the next pig market will be held on 23rd June.

At a Special Meeting held by the Fethard Town Commissioners on 21st March it is ordered to prepare ‘a memorial to the Lord Lieutenant... [from] the Town Commissioners, Clergy, Magistrates and others’ as a result of their monthly fair being suspended. In earlier minutes (7th February and 4th March), it was agreed to apply for their usual permit to hold the ‘Monthly Fair’ which is the ‘principal fair in the south of Ireland... to procure cattle, and buyers attend from all parts of the country’. By April, the frustration caused by these suspensions has increased and the meeting of 11th April orders ‘that the Clerk write to the Surveyor pointing out to him their present financial position owing to Military Restrictions on the Markets and Fairs and they refused to pay the Tax demanded’.

As part of the significant road construction works on the N24 Davitt St and Church St, Tipperary Town a Temporary Traffic Management Plan is proposed to best manage the traffic through the town during the Works. Approximately 7000 vehicles per day travel on this road.

In order to reduce traffic where possible through the town during the works, Alternative Routes will be signposted for vehicles (except HGV’s) on the approaches to the town.
See attached drawing identifying the Alternative Routes. These shall be in place for the duration of the project (February to September 2019).

From May to September when works are taking place on Church St, a 1–way system is proposed due to the restricted width here.
This will allow the Works to be carried out safely and as efficiently as possible.
Eastbound traffic would remain on the N24 past the Works and westbound traffic would be directed from Main St to O’Brien St to O’Connell Road rejoining the N24 after the Works close to Redmond Square.
See attached drawing of 1–way system.
This 1-way route includes a temporary mini-roundabout at the Galbally Rd/Emly Rd/O’Brien St junction. This roundabout is necessary to allow the safe and effective movement of vehicles through this junction. The current junction layout has very poor visibility. The size of the roundabout is the minimum required to allow turning space for goods vehicles.

We acknowledge that some disruption will be caused by this 1–way system but see it as the best option for the safe and swift completion of the Works and also the avoidance of lengthy delays on the N24 through Tipperary Town.

Further Traffic Management Plans are likely including some Road Closures along the Works where side roads access onto Davitt St and Church St.
Any Road Closures will be notified to effected Residents and published in local newspapers in advance.

We appreciate the cooperation of residents and locals and Tipperary County Council will work with the Contractor to minimise the disruption as much as possible.
