Welcome from Michael Smith- Cathaoirleach Tipperary County Council 2020




It is a great honour for me to serve as Cathaoirleach of the County Council in Tipperary. My aim is to bring a new and dynamic drive to the process of solving the housing crisis. This will involve examining every available site for new builds, Local Authority Housing Schemes. We will also invite Housing Associations to explore their full potential. I have a special interest in the renewal and re use of old vacant housing stock which is still in good condition.

Outdoor healthy pursuits are very important, I am promoting safe walking routes and will do everything I can to ensure more and more people avail of them.

We are witnessing an up surge in voluntary endeavours in many areas and it should be encouraged. Tidy Towns, Village Renewal, artistic activities, and many different kinds of sport deserve to be supported. Financial Incentives are critical to further encourage voluntary work at every level.

The County Council through our Enterprise supports is to the forefront in helping to develop new employment opportunities. Getting people back to work is essential for our Country to prosper. Rates relief for struggling businesses must be available. I would ask people to shop local to holiday in Ireland and keep safe.

Cathaoirleach Tipperary County Council 2020

How do I register with SupplyGov?

SupplyGov.ie has two sections

  • Requests for Tenders (RFTs) - Requests for Tenders are mini competitions run under Frameworks and
  • Requests for Quotations (RFQs)these are for under €25,000 aggregate spend

Suppliers can register at www.supplygov.ie and completing the necessary checklists and documentation. All new Frameworks are published as a contract notice on eTenders, the Irish Government Portal. So it is vital that you are registered on eTenders if you want notification of relevant frameworks relating to Plant Hire; Minor Building & Civil Works and related training. You cannot join an existing framework until the framework is re-advertised.
