On September 6th, all Councillors in the Tipperary, Cashel and Cahir Municipal District were sent an email asking them to respond to a series of questions about the work that was done recently on Cup and Saucer, a Norman Motte in Tipperary Hills. Councillors were asked to respond by 21 September (a little over two weeks). However, only one Councillor has answered the questions at the time of writing (25 September).
An open letter has been written to all Councillors in the Municipal District of Tipperary, Cashel and Cahir. The letter arose out of substantial public concern about works that have been carried out on a nearly 1,000 year old Norman Motte, known locally as Cup and Saucer, in Tipperary Hills. The letter, shown below, details some significant differences between what was approved by the Council and what was ultimately carried out on the Motte.
In a recent opinion poll, 72% of respondents (some 536 people) stated that the stairs should be removed. Councillors have been asked to respond to the open letter by Wednesday 21 September. Any responses by Councillors will be published.
Senator Gerard Craughwell recently made reference in the Seanad to a visit he made to Tipperary Town. In his speech, he said that a number of issues struck him during his visit. Among those was the littered state of part of the Council offices on Rosanna Road. Councillor Michael Fitzgerald later made a comment on social media that suggested that Senator Craughwell "seems to be brain dead". Councillor Fitzgerald also made reference to Senator Craughwell's hearing difficulty.
