Six feet of dangerous water in basement

A call has been made for Thurles Town Council to purchase the derilict Munster Hotel building on Cathedral Street, Thurles with the view to establishing a new civic office facility at the location.

The building, which has been the subject of much public comment in recent times due to it’s delapidated appearance and the presence of more than six feet of flood water in the basement, commands a very central and key strategic location in the town with almost 150 car parking spaces attached - spaces which are currently being rented by the Town Council for use by the general public.

And, with the once impressive facade, now crumbling, dirty and visually non-appealing, a call has been made by Cllr Michael Cleary for the council to engage with receivers KPMG with the view to purchasing the building which could be renovated and used as a civic office type facility.
