Allocation of Funding for St Joseph's CBS Nenagh

Posted on March 20, 2017 by Alan Kelly

I am delighted to confirm that the Department of Education & Skills has approved funding for five mainstream classrooms, toilet facilities and funding for the demolition of prefabs for St. Joseph's CBS in Nenagh.  This is very welcome news for the school, I am delighted for the staff, management and pupils there.  St. Joseph's CBS in Nenagh is a very progressive school.  In 2013 I was delighted to be in a position to officially open the €470,734.00 extension at the school. It is great to see further development taking place.

I would like to wish principal Karen O'Donnell, the staff, pupils and Board of Management of the school continued success and congratulate them on their hard work and commitment to the school.

State Must Intervene in Slivermines Land

Posted on March 13, 2017 by Alan Kelly

I beleive that the State has to intervene and invest on behalf of the people of the Silvermines in the old mining lands.

We've had some very positive developments in the Silvermines in recent times with the announcement of the Hydro Electric Project which is progressing along nicely. I've had several meetings in relation to the project in recent months and I expect there will be a further update on the progression of the project before the Summer. This is an incredible project that will supply up to 10% of the country's electricity when completed. It will provide employment and also clean up an environmental legacy.

However, we also have the rather concerning developments regarding some of the other old mining lands in the area and they need to be addressed.

Need for more ASD classes in schools in the Nenagh area

Posted on March 13, 2017 by Alan Kelly

I have a number of parents who are struggling to get their children into an ASD class despite it being clear that this is the best choice for their children. They are willing to go to the ends of the earth in order to help their children and travel long distances to get to a designated school but even with such sacrifices there are some who cannot get a place.

 
There are approximately 14,000 students with ASD in the school system and of these approximately 23% are educated in special classes in mainstream primary and post-primary schools. These special classes operate across Tipperary in over 40 schools but we simly do not have enough of them to meet the obvious needs of the children that require them.

Petition calling on the Constituency Commission to reassign the areas of North Tipperary from the Offaly constituency back into Tipperary before the next General Election

Posted on December 05, 2016 by Alan Kelly

Petition for Newspapers
Petition for Newspapers
I am calling on every one in Tipperary to sign this petition before January 6, 2017, the petition will then be sent as a submission to the constituency commission.  The countdown has now commenced to the next boundary review report which should be completed by Summer 2017. We need to make sure that the electoral commission get a very clear understanding that breaking county boundaries is not acceptable, particularly for large counties like Tipperary.
Earlier this year over 10,000 people from North Tipperary were forced to vote in the Offaly constituency in the General Election.  This is a decision that they were not consulted on enough and which flies in the face of common sense considering they're represented locally on Tipperary County Council.
