Derelict buildings

'Back of the Pipes'

Derelict buildings

Cllr Tom Wood pointed to the continuing dangerous state of three buildings in an area known locally as the Back of the Pipes, just off Cashel’s Main Street, at this month's meeting of the Cashel Tipperary Municipal District.

“It has become a no-go area,” he said. “It’s very unfortunate for businesses at both ends of the street. How long does it take for action to be taken?” He was told that there difficulties in contacting the owners of the derelict buildings in question. There are a number of dangerous sites around the county. “Sometimes it’s not simple getting work done,” said an official.

Cllr Wood said “it’s frightening at the moment. It’s amazing that people can ‘disappear’ off the face of the earth.” Emergency measures have been put in place, but “you can’t keep the road closed forever. It’s getting more dangerous by the week. The owner of the three buildings is a person who must be identified. I ask that it be given emergency treatment.”
