The people of Tipp town will get the chance to hear the plans and aims of the long awaited taskforce.

Following two marches in the town – where thousands turned out – the Taoiseach agreed to appoint a body to deal with the issues raised.

Initially €100,000 will be set aside for the work – coming from the Department of Planning and Urban Renewal, while funding will be provided as required.

There’ll be a public meeting in Tipperary town in the next month – where the aims of the taskforce will be outlined.

Speaking on Tipp Today this morning, Deputy Michael Lowry gave assurances that the task force is there to stay.
