“This could go all the way to the High Court. People feel very strong about it and are not going to give up on it now.” he said.

Deputy McGrath said Tippeary County Council was conducting their business behind closed doors.

“Everything now has to be decided at a workshop. The press are locked out, it is undemocratic. It’s the council way or the highway” said Deputy McGrath.

He said the community had not been properly consulted on the matter.

“Ardfinnan is a long way from Nenagh where the council bosses operate from. The community will not lie down on this” he said.

Deputy McGrath said he was very concerned about the dangers to children attending Ardfinnan primary school which was re-opening after th e summer on Thursday.

“The traffic lights installed by the council outside the school pose a real danger and create a serious hazard. It is mayhem outside the school and parents and teachers are very concerned and rightly so.”
