Thurles Mayor Accused of Abusing Power
The Mayor of Thurles Cllr Michael Cleary (Fine Gael) has been accused of abusing his position following his refusal to take a vote on a motion of no confidence in his party colleague, Minister for Health James Reilly TD, at the monthly meeting of the Town Council this week.
The vote of no confidence had been proposed by Councillor Jim Ryan and seconded by Councillor David Doran who labelled the Minister “a disaster”. But, Mayor Cleary refused to hear the proposal and urged Thurles Town Clerk Mr Michael Ryan to ‘move on” with the agenda, much to the chagrin of the two councillors who felt that a legitimate proposal had been tabled and seconded.
