Mattie McGrath T.D. has welcomed additional funding of €14,222 for South Tipperary under the Seniors Alert Scheme.

"This involves a grant of €8,478 for Cashel and District Social Services and €5,744 for Moycarkey Borris Littleton Community Alert and is additional to other monies contributed to different projects earlier in the year," said McGrath.

"I am delighted that this will see more older people in the county benefiting from the grant schemes this year. I would like to take this opportunity to thank local organisations in promoting and fostering community activity at a local level. I would ask them to continue to look after the older people in their communities by visiting them frequently especially during periods of poor weather,"said the Deputy.

"Finally I wish everyone a Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year".
