THE High Court has made orders requiring members of the Traveller community to vacate an unofficial halting in Co Tipperary by Tuesday of next week.

The orders were granted by Ms Justice Leonie Reynolds to Tipperary County Council against eight people whose presence at Cabragh Bridge, Cabragh, Thurles, allegedly constitutes a public nuisance.

The Council's proceedings are against William McCarthy, Elizabeth McCarthy, Mary Ellen McCarthy, Jimmy McCarthy, John McCarthy, Winnie McCarthy, Belinda O'Reilly and Ned O'Reilly.

Last week the council obtained permission to serve short notice of the proceedings against the defendants.

Galway City Council has said that it will seek a court order to force a number of Traveller families to move from outside its administrative building, if they do not do so voluntarily. Galway City Council said that nine Traveller families were issued with formal letters this morning to leave the City Hall Car Park.

The matter returned before the court on Thursday.

David Humphries Bl, for the council, said his client had served the proceedings on the defendants and was seeking injunctions compelling the defendants to remove their mobile homes, vehicles and caravans from Cabragh Bridge, and not cause any obstruction to the roadway.

The council also sought orders requiring the defendants to vacate and cease residing on or anywhere in the vicinity of Cabragh Bridge, which it says is an inappropriate and unsuitable place to reside.

Counsel told the court that the council had offered the defendants alternative accommodation, either at another halting site which was relatively close to the Cabragh Bridge.

While that offer had been made some time ago and had not been accepted by the defendants, counsel said the offer of alternative accommodation "remained open."

There was no appearance by any of the defendants when the case was called on.

Ms Justice Reynolds said she was satisfied to grant the orders sought and said that the defendants must vacate the site by 5pm on Tuesday.

The defendants, the judge must be served with the court's orders by the gardai by 5pm tomorrow.

The court heard that members of the McCarthy family have lived on the Bridge for forty years.

The bridge had formed a part of the R659 regional road. The bridge was left in place following the construction of a new section of that road some years ago.

Tipperary Council has made provision for Travellers who had resided on the bridge to be accommodated in six unit group housing scheme, which is now ready for occupation.

However, the defendants in this action, who it claims moved to the site on various dates between 2015 and September 2018, are not being accommodated in the new scheme.

The council has offered the defendants help in securing alternative accommodation, but says it needs the site at Cabragh Bridge cleared.

The council added that it asked the defendants to leave the site, but they did not do so and that in light of the refusal it had no alternative other than bring legal proceedings against the defendants.
