Plans lodged for West Tipp innovation park

A planning application is to be lodged this week for what has been described as a “game changer” for West Tipperary.

Plans were unveiled last month for an innovation park on the outskirts of Tipperary Town.

It’s hoped the 1.5 hectare site just off the N24 will be developed in three stages – it’s estimated that in the space of five years it could create over 700 jobs.

Local Labour TD Alan Kelly – who was instrumental in moving the project forward – says owners Corajio have been working hard on the project.
