Local representatives Tom Hayes and Michael Murphy have welcomed the news that CIE and Bus Eireann are in negotiations to reopen the café at Clonmel railway and bus station. he café has been closed in recent times leaving passengers and tourists without access to refreshments or toilet facilities.
Speaking today Deputy Hayes said: “We are very pleased with the developments regarding efforts to secure a tenant for the café at Clonmel Railway station.
“I certainly hope negotiations can be brought to a successful conclusion as the café is of very significant importance for passengers as well as tourists visiting the area. Having no toilet facilities available in the year of The Gathering would certainly be an undesirable situation. Councillor Murphy and I have been in regular contact with CIE in relation to this and hope to see the café and its facilities open in the near future.
