Cllr Hanafin also welcomed the news and paid tribute to the work of Thurles Lions which has made huge strides in providing housing in the town.
"This has bee an iconic building in Thurles since the 1880's and one which has served the community very well but is need of an upgrade. It is a listed building and it was a substantial and complex project. The application to the department was very complex and there are very few organisations who would have the capacity to get this done. This building will meet the demand for 1 and 2 bedroom units and the €3.7million investment is very welcome. I am confident that many of the local businesses will benefit from it as well," Cllr Hanafin said.
