Frustration’s been expressed over the inclusion of a Carrick on Suir landbank in the county’s house building plans.

A masterplan is being drawn up for the site at Coolnamuck road on the outskirts of Carrickbeg as part of Tipp County Council’s efforts to reduce the long waiting lists for housing.

However several councillors have informed officals that the land in question is under dispute so any development would be unlikely.

The matter was raised again at this month’s meeting of the Municipal District, and Sinn Fein’s David Dunne was less than impressed.
