Campaigning with Jan
Campaigning with Jan

I was out again in Limerick with Jan O'Sullivan, Cllr. Tom Hannon and Cllr. Joe Leddin as well as a number of their colleagues. As the only Mid West candidate, I feel a real sense that the people of the area want to have someone from their end of the constituency representing them in Brussels. It is coming across in spades!

On Thursday (Feb 26th), we held a get together of Labour party members, supporters and other organisations and voluntary groups in the Mid West in the Marriott hotel in Limerick. A very large crowd attended to here myself and Jon O'Sullivan speak either side of our party leader, Eamon Gilmore.

There was a wide range of people at the meeting to here Eamon give a fantastic speech, which espoused the need for strong leadership in order to turn this country around.

Canvassing in Limerick
Canvassing in Limerick

I was canvassing in Limerick city with many of my colleagues recently. The response was excellent and I was very encouraged by it. Its very easy to canvass with my friend and colleague Jan O'Sullivan, as she is very popular with the locals in Limerick. I was also out with Joe Kemmy, Jim's brother, which is always a pleasure. I was always a huge admirer of Jim Kemmy. He was a man of huge integrity and kept his values and beliefs throughout his political life.

Old O'Connor's Shopping Centre Site

Posted on September 10, 2018 by Alan Kelly


I want to thank developer Martin Healy for the interest he has shown in Nenagh by redeveloping the former O’Connor’s shopping site.

The site was left derelict for many years until Martin purchased it and only for him it may have remained so. I was delighted to be able to work with him to develop the site and ensure vibrancy was brought back to that very special site in Nenagh.

This district has a great future with future shopping potential in the area along with the redevelopment of Sheehan’s Hardware and the proposed redevelopment of the Mr Price building as well.

I look forward to all this work going ahead and I know there are other future development plans in the town as well that will compliment these developments.

It shows how Nenagh as a town is growing and that was reinforced recently when it was announced that Nenagh is he fastest growing town in Tipperary.

With new industries such as First Data and new has, water and sewage infrastructure aided to a fantastic location Nenagh will go from strength to strength in the coming years

Nenagh-Dublin Direct Train

Posted on March 05, 2012 by Alan Kelly

Nenagh-Dublin Train Launch

I have recently announced an overhaul of rail services on the Ballybrophy railway line, including additional early morning train services to Dublin under the new Iarnród Éireann Spring/Summer schedule. This is a fantastic development for those living and commuting in the areas of Nenagh and Roscrea. As the local Minister in the Department of Transport, providing this vital service has been a priority for me.

These new trains mean you'll be in Dublin in 2 hours 20 minutes from Nenagh and there will be no change at Ballybrophy on this service. What this effectively means is that for the first time people from Nenagh have the ability to get to Dublin, on one train, for work or college before 9am.

Inspirational 'Visit Nenagh' Cycle Team

Posted on February 13, 2012 by Alan Kelly

Visit Nenagh Cycle Team

This team are an inspiration. They came to me last November looking for my support and of course it was forthcoming. Nenagh has always had a strong interest in cycling and the lads have been participating in cycling competitions in some cases for over a decade. It is a fantastic achievement to have our own team in Nenagh that will promote the town and the area in general. Nenagh has a unique selling point now with the N7 cycleway to Limerick that will be able to attract in events and competitions in the future. Working with the team and their supporters I want to make Nenagh, a town placed in the centre of the country as the centre piece of Irish cycling'.

Young Scientists Exhibition

Posted on January 19, 2012 by Alan Kelly

Young Scientist 3

I visited the 2012 Young Scientist Exhibition last week and came across many interesting projects which demonstrate that there are Tipperary teenagers out there putting their brains to work in the food and science sectors. I met with schools from Borrisokane, Thurles and Roscrea during the day. It is only when you see that many enthusiastic kids under one roof you think, yes, there are brilliant students out there and they can ensure the future of innovative indigenous business. There was an incredibly high standard of local entries, which illustrates that North Tipperary students are among the best in the country.

Integrated Ticketing

Posted on November 30, 2011 by Alan Kelly

MIN KELLY NEW LEAP CARD MX2 I was delighted to unveil the new Leap Card, the long-promised integrated ticketing for Dublin. After 12 years of promises, it’s great to see this project final get off the ground, a positive move for integrated travel. I have worked extremely hard to get this project moving as I felt it was important to commuters. We have 500 customers testing the system for us at the moment and we’ll take their feedback so that the final launch is as smooth as possible.
