Tipperary Hills will get a major investment in the near future as Tipperary County Council were awarded €500,000 under the Town & Village Renewal Scheme towards the enhancement of the much-loved public park in early 2022. The scheme will be finalised in early 2023, and the funding will be used for a range of improvements including improved access and pathways, new picnic benches and furniture, improvements to the car park, landscaping and planting, and an upgrade of the “Flat Hollow” kick-about area. The €0.5M investment from the Department of Rural and Community Development will be matched by a further contribution of € 125,000 from Tipperary County Council giving a total project value of €625,000.

Work is expected to get underway in 2023 once the scheme has been approved for planning permission. The area is maintained to the highest standard by Tipperary Pitch and Putt Club, Tipperary Tidy Towns and Tipperary County Council and this investment aims to ensure that the Hills will continue to be one of the best recreational amenities in the country for many years to come. Planning for a second phase with further improvements will also begin in 2023.
