Best & Worst County Tipperary towns



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,039 ✭✭✭Paddico

    Hi all, reinventing this post again. Looking through the comments in Tipp town now and its not showing it in great light in fairness.
    I'm not from the area but we recently were left a house on the outskirts of the town and considering moving there.( currently renting in another county)
    Weighing up the pros and cons in Ireland seems to be skyrocketing at the moment so financially makes sense but can't shake the bad tipp tow
    n vibe either..
    Has it improved any bit over the last few years??

    The Town as always had an edge but like the comments below, has great sports clubs and facilities and a real good community spirit. The areas and parishes around the town are lovely and perfect for family life.
    How far from the town are you?

    No nothing going back to the 80s anyway,would be too young to remember anyone before that

    Bizarre given the its closeness to limerick, its hurling country but same cannot remember a single hurler coming out of there obviously the clubs aren't putting in the work underage.

    Lot of work been done in nenagh should benefit the whole of north tipp in the long run. Council bought lisbunny industrial park a ring rd from the dublin to to the borrisokane rd would be a good traffic relief job going through that industrial.park, parts over by Streame seem to be getting developed now. Even Fiserv going in and taking over the building that was there improved the area visually now they are expanding. A digital hub is to be built there too. Many of the old houses in the town seems to be getting bought up and renovated. Potential for some of the unfinished estates to get finished off now serious shortage of houses in the nenagh area.. if only the rail line had decent times to allow for commuting into limerick would be a benefit too
    Nice job done over the Erin foods site in Thurles. Now if only some businesses etc could go into the square and run down friar st they are awful looking. Expansion of the Mary I campus and the LIT campus should help bring some life back to the town and with a bit of imagination benefit the eyesore thats the munster hotel. Nenagh as a town has way more up and go about it than Thurles
    Templemore is an odd one. A town with a bit of potential. Local politicans dont even seen to care much about it. It doesnt even benefit from the crowds that come over to the park or climb the devils bit. There are a few local who volunteer their time to help the town since it lost its town council some locals got together to form a developement association but their is only so much they can do They have got funding to improve the park and restore some of the old walls on approach rd. There is also another group of volunteers trying to make the town a sustainable town working alongside the tipperary sustainable energy organisations. Its a pitty these people are not getting supported more by local politicians or even getting some recognition in local press
    If your a sports lover loads of options in the town for you both on a competitive and just as a social activity basis.

    To be fair they are in the middle of a multi million euro facelift to the square in Thurles so you would hope the better more pedestrian friendly area will entice more businesses . Apparently a business centre being built on Erin food site too

    Thurles needs to capitalise on the Semple stadium / GAA thing . Any forward thinking would have a Munster museum at the stadium and some sort of crossover deal for tourists staying in Hayes hotel . And I don’t mean the half arsed joke that was Lar an Pairce museum.

    It’s the biggest stadium outside of a city in the country , steeped in history . Plus the hotel was the birthplace of the association. It might mean feck all to a lot of people but it would mean a lot to GAA fans who might like to say the visited it . But it has never been packaged properly or marketed .

    West Tipp in general has never been a ground for county hurlers. Never mind Tipp Town. GAA wise, football is stronger.
    That said, Arravale Rovers in Tipp town is a fine hurling and football club.
    There are other strong clubs to town pulling lads in different directions.

    St Michaels FC is an excellent soccer club. Theres Tipperary Twon FC and of course there is Clanwilliam RFC, one the oldest rugby clubs in Ireland

    Speaking of Fiserv, does anyone know what they're like to work for?
