Labour Senator Denis Landy has welcomed the implementation of a stimulus package which will much enhance access to medical attention in Clonmel, Carrick on Suir and Thurles. Senator Landy hopes that General Practitioners from both towns will work closely together in order to maximize the benefits that can be accessed through this stimulus package.
“Purpose built health centres will be tremendous additions to these towns and will provide a place where people can get both preventative and curative treatments”.
The inclusion of the provision of a new Vocational Education School to replace Comeragh College has also been welcomed by Senator Landy. The current situation whereby students attending the current school are spread across a number of buildings across the town is unsustainable according to Senator Landy.
Investment for many projects had to be delayed when the capital spending budget for this year was cut by €755 million to €3.9 billion last November. The Government has decided once again to invest into the future and as such this must be seen as Ireland moving forward and in the right direction for growth and a healthy economy. “I am delighted Tipperary will benefit in this way – a new vocational school and three new health centres will be marvellous for all Tipperary residents” says Senator Landy
