Cllr Tom Wood has corresponded with the eight Oireachtas members for Co. Tipperary outlining the significance of the historic collection in the Bolton Library.

He outlined the importance of securing its future for Cashel and Tipperary. It was initially hoped that the OPW would take the Library in charge and link it directly to the Rock of Cashel but when that proposal failed to materialise plans were put in place to transfer the unique collection to the University of Limerick. Recently Cllr Wood called on the Department of Arts to consider taking it in charge. By the time of going to print six of Tipperary’s Oireachtas members had responded to Cllr Wood. Environment Minister Alan Kelly said he had made representations to Minister Heather Humphreys and wrote: “if there is anything else I can help you with, please do not hesitate to contact me here at the office.”
