News that Thurles Town Council has purchased land at Loughtagalla opposite St Patrick’s Cemetery to allow for the provision of a car park has been widely welcomed by members of the local authority.

Thurles Town Clerk, Mr Michael Ryan, informed the councillors at the monthly meeting on Monday night that land had been purchased in conjunction with Peake Villa FC opposite Cleary’s Garage and will be developed to allow for approximately 30 car parking spaces which can be used by visitors to the cemetery.
