Local TD, Alan Kelly, Minister for Public and Commuter Transport has

welcomed the announcement by County Manager Joe McGrath of a

new Local Authority Social Employment Scheme for North Tipperary.

Under the scheme thirty people will be taken on commencing in

September. The successful applicants will not have an impact on any

existing staff or their jobs. The applicants will integrate with the

Council to alleviate over stretched staff at present. It is envisaged

that more positions could be filled in the future but the scheme will

start with thirty positions.

Minister Kelly said “I am delighted with this announcement as it will

give people very valuable experience working in the council”.
