Nenagh town councillor Tommy Morgan has been taken to task over comments he made about Arrabawn Co-op and Nenagh’s indoor track.
Cllr Morgan claimed the council had put “thousands” into Ballygraigue estate but people attending the track were parking on footpaths, showing “no respect for anybody. Isn’t it time the creamery handed over a bit of ground. The club is bringing fantastic business to the town. The creamery closed the Railway Bar. They want to put their arm around everything. It’s high time they gave something back to the community and were not so bloody greedy,” he said.
While town manager Marcus O’Connor agreed with the the parking issue, he said: “It is not the co-op that are parking their cars there. The co-op provides good employment.”
Cllr Conor Delaney said it all “boils down to individual responsibility”, and urged that the Gardai be called to deal with illegal parking.
Cllr Lalor McGee said the club brings in a lot of money, and he wouldn’t like to see the Gardai out putting tickets on cars.
