“We’ve a long tradition in the context of sport here in Clonmel and I think this facility will ensure that that tradition will last for generations to come.

“There will be a facilities manager and the involvement of Clonmel Athletic Club, Clonmel Cycling Club and Clonmel Triathlon Club – we’ll all come together, we will get it right and it will be a great boost to Clonmel.”
