MINISTER CAN’T CONSIDER UN VETERANS REQUEST YET
Councillor Kevin O’Keeffe has had the Fermoy UN Veterans’ Association request’ to take over Fitzgerald Camp for use as a military museum and interpretative centre’ raised in the Dail.
He had Niall Collins TD ask Defence Minister, Alan Shatter to hand over the premises to Post 25 given the decision to relocate the Reserve Forces from the camp to Mallow. Cllr O’Keeffe told The Avondhu this week that he welcomed the minister’s response and feels it’s very positive.
“I hope when the time comes for proposals that the UN Veterans’ Association will make a strong case,” he said. The minister’s reply in the Dail on the matter will however have been cold comfort to Army Reserve members who were still holding out some hope that the move wouldn’t go ahead.
