Tragic Death Of Tipp Councillor

It is with deep regret that we learned this morning of the tragic passing of a Tipperary County Councillor, Cllr Willie Kennedy.

Local Councillor Andy Moloney told Cahir News Online that they had attended the first of a series of workshops on Renewable Energy Strategy in Thurles earlier in the evening. Like many public representatives Willie left to continue his duties and was attending a funeral when he was struck by a passing car. Cllr Moloney described Willie as a genuine sort who would support any motion that was for the benefit of the community and his absence will be a loss in the chambers. He expressed his sympathy to Cllrs Kennedys family at this time. Funeral arrangements later.
