The work of volunteers in North Tipp is central to community development.
That’s the message from councillor Shane Lee who says the awarding of enhancement funding is a way for Tipperary County council to show their appreciation for the work of the local community groups.
Recently, Killea was in receipt of €25,000 while Knock received €10,000 under the enhancement works scheme.
Speaking to Tipp FM councillor Lee said this is going towards improving facilities and the aesthetic of the villages.
“This is very positive – its positive for a very unique community in Killea. A very tight knit community where you have a load of good volunteers coming together to resurface the front of the community centre.
Knock community as well, they’ve received €10,000 to do works within their parish. Again a very unique village – good strong community. They keep their village very clean and very well enhanced.”
