This thread is really stupid. All the towns in Tipperary have positives and negatives but that doesn't mean one town is better than the rest. I don't dislike a single area in Tipperary. I dislike the anti-social behaviours in these towns but its a small majority doing it. Stop bashing these towns as you are painting everybody with the same brush. Sure some of these town have high unemployment, crime, chavs/skangers, drug dealers, unmarried mothers (which isn't a big deal these days for us who stopped been Catholic) Goths, Emos, Murderers, and rapists etc but how can you judge a whole community by just a very small handful of people who lets say certainly won't win person of the year in the towns. Most of these towns have heritage and really interesting history, brilliant locally run businesses and top third level colleges, great music, arts. Can name hundreds more things that great about all Tipperary towns. Bash the terrible people who carry out all the unpleasant things not the whole communities.
What should really be criticized is the poor public transport between all towns in Tipperary. How a number of people in Nenagh were never even down the south of the county. Or people in Cahir/Carrick on Suir/Tipperary town finding it really difficult to go and support their county because there is no public transport to Thurles. (I am aware about the train line. Although the train service exists to Limerick Junction from Waterford, which then brings you to Thurles by changing trains on the mainline the timetable is really crap)
