Sporting Bodies Lend Their Support to The Tipperary Venue

What The Proposed Tipperary Venue Might Look Like

A number of sporting bodies as well as champion racehorse trainer Aidan O’ Brien have lent their support to a proposed €460m sports and leisure complex planned for Co. Tipperary.  Mr O’ Brien and his wife Ann Marie were among a number of observers who attended the An Bord Pleanála oral hearing into the Tipperary Venue.  Businessman Richard Quirke wants to build a hotel and casino, a golf course, an indoor entertainment venue, an equestrian centre and horseracing and greyhound racing tracks on an 800 acre site at Two-Mile-Borris.

A number of local residents, along with An Taisce have objected to the plan on the grounds of its size, sustainability and impact on the local landscape and road networks.  Horseracing Ireland, Bord na gCon, Horse Sport Ireland, Shannon Development and the Thurles Chamber of Commerce are among the bodies who have given the thumbs up to the project.
