Cllr Seamus Morris complains over frequency of morning meetings at Tipperary County Council

Cllr Seamus Morris

Cllr Seamus Morris has put Tipperary County Council on notice that he is to make a formal complaint over the practice of holding meetings in the mornings.

Cllr Morris, a post office delivery man, has long complained over having to take time off work to attend meetings and has asked that some be held in the afternoon or evening.

He asked that his apologies be made at the recent Housing SPC meeting, which was held at 10am.

"I feel that, as a full time worker I am being disenfranchised due to meetings being held in mornings and I do not want the meetings that I am missing to lead to me getting punished later in the year. I will be making a formal complaint about this," he wrote in an email to housing officer Donal Purcell.

Mr Purcell replied that it had been agreed at the May meeting that the October meeting would be held in Thurles at 10am.
