Almost 150 people from local business, the community and voluntary sectors, attended to hear An Taoiseach Enda Kenny announce that he will return to Thurles with positive news for the town.
Speaking to the assembled audience, An Taoiseach stated: “The prospectus for Thurles should be as fine as anywhere else and I will take Deputy Coonan up on his offer to come back to Thurles with positive news for the town. I am happy to associate myself with efforts made locally by bodies such as Enterprise Ireland and Shannon Development, to mention a few.”
Commenting on next week’s Stability Treaty, Noel Coonan stated: “We need certainty and stability to our economic crisis across Europe. Thurles, along with so many other provincial towns, has experienced job losses and hardship, so today I am delighted to have An Taoiseach here; the man who can put it right.”
