Calls for pro-active approach to hedge cutting in Tipp

Renewed calls have been made for overgrown hedges to be cut by the council proactively.

The issue was raised at this month’s meeting of the Thurles/Templemore Municipal District, with Cllr David Doran saying it’s a serious health and safety issue.

He claims there are numerous junctions in his area alone which the council have previously cut back, but havent yet done so this year – making visibilty poor.

The Sinn Fein Cllr says the hedges should be cut every year, before they become overgrown..
