Tipperary County Council



Foreward Cathaoirleach Councillor Michael Murphy

I was delighted to be elected as Cathaoirleach of Tipperary County Council on 7th June 2019.
My term of office will be built on 4 key principles:

Commitment to Tipperary County Council as the local authority for the county;

Optimism for the county, as our Corporate Plan states “ambitious for our communities, demanding of ourselves and working to a shared purpose to deliver prosperity across the county”;

Respect for my fellow elected members and for the people, communities, businesses and stakeholders whom we engage with on a daily basis; and

Impartiality to all who contribute to the elected representatives’ deliberations in the Council Chamber.

In relation to my hometown of Clonmel, I will be working to progress the implementation of the Kickham Barracks redevelopment, the public realm plan to upgrade the town centre’s streetscape, the proposed sports hub on the Frank Drohan Road and I will also work closely with Bulmers in driving forward its planned Visitor Centre for Dowd’s Lane.

It is important, as a County, as a Community and as a Council, to drive the County forward in terms of, for example, infrastructure, tourism, recreation, amenity and good health, the goal being to make Tipperary a better place to live and conduct business. It is not just about putting plans in place, it is about implementing the plans by securing the necessary investment to make Tipperary a better place to live and work in.

In conclusion, I look forward to working with the Management, Staff and Members of the Council in ensuring that the county of Tipperary continues to grow and develop for all of our citizens.
