Tipperary County Council
Welcome from Marie Murphy - Cathaoirleach Tipperary County Council 2021
It is a great honour and privilege for me to serve as Cathaoirleach for the coming year.
If I was to summarise in one word what principle will be at the centre of my interactions over the next 12 months, it is ‘Respect’, to maintain the good working relationship I have with my fellow councillors in engaging with each other and having pride in our day to day work in our council and for the citizens and stakeholder in our county.
In terms of the County Council’s agenda over the next twelve months, the Rural Regeneration and Development Fund, the Urban Regeneration and Development Fund, Town and Village Renewal Schemes, to mention just a few, have brought significant investment to County Tipperary over the past few years. Maintaining the level of funding through these schemes will be really important. Similarly, the N24 Upgrade project is vital for the county given the lack of improvement over the last three decades and the fact that it meanders through large towns like Carrick-on-Suir and Tipperary towns and villages such as Bansha and Kilsheelan.
The formulation of the next County Development Plan is a work in progress. As Cathaoirleach, I will be urging my fellow elected members to ensure that there is significant public engagement with this document which will be the Council’s ‘bible’ until 2028. As someone who had to emigrate to England in the mid-1980s, along with tens of thousands of others, because of a severe economic downturn, I am well aware of the important work we all do. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had very high youth unemployment but no international outlet for their talents and energies. Let us do our collective utmost to give this generation of young people the best chance of staying and succeeding here if they want to.
