Calls for Tipperary County Council to redouble efforts in engaging with the residents of Upper Irishtown in Clonmel
“Residents in this area are concerned at the level of anti-social behaviour that is taking place in the vicinity, and this is why it is crucial that the issue of the ownership of a lane just off Sergeant’s Lane is resolved as soon as possible so that measures needed to combat anti-social activity can be put in place.
“I have seen a newspaper report in The Nationalist Newspaper in 1993 that includes a reference to an official from Tipperary County Council confirming at the time that the access point in question is not a public thoroughfare.
“This indicates that there is little reason in delaying any further permitting residents to take action that would restrict access to this lane.
“All that needs to be done is for the County Council to engage with local residents; and I am sure that the matter could be resolved quickly and easily so that preventative measures can be taken to address the unwanted behaviour that affecting the quality of life for the local community.
“I have written to Tipperary County Council requesting that a meeting take place with residents to bring this
issue to a resolution.”
