Tinryland Tigh an Raoireann
There was a good attendance at the launch of the feasibility study for the development of the Tinryland area by Michael Keyes in Rathcrogue Centre on Friday, May 21.
Darragh Murphy of Barrow Nore Suir Development congratulated the study and said that this showed there was a vibrant and stable group in the parish. He said the statistics and identity of the area were important features of the booklet and with the highest proportion of the population in the 0-14 age group, the long-term prospects were very secure for the area. The main priorities of development were seen as the development of the Village Hall and development of youth resources.
Jim Townsend, chairman of Carlow County Council welcomed the study and addressed the questions that needed to be answered including the development of the ball alley and hall and the urgent need for more public lighting in the area. The sewerage system was seen as satisfactory but he went on to say that because of busy industry and traffic on approach roads, the local roads were in a bad state.
The study ,which contains a comprehensive statistical profile of the area, details of a questionnaire carried out in the area and proposed development in the locality, is a well worthwhile read and can be obtained from any member of the Tinryland Area Development Association (T.A.D.A).
The meeting was also attended by John Browne TD, Cllr. Enda Nolan and members of the BNS Group.
