"What happens in Tipp, stays in Tipp": how Twitter reacted to the Tipperary casino and leisure complex

After An Bord Pleanála granted planning permission for a €450 million leisure development in rural north Tipperary today, Twitter went all a-flutter with views on the #TippCasino

SINCE BEING GIVEN the go ahead this morning by An Bord Pleanála the €450 million casino and leisure complex proposed for north Tipperary has been the subject of much talk on Twitter.

The 800-acre development proposed for Two Mile Borris in Tipperary will include a full-size replica of the White House, a gambling casino, a 500-bedroom hotel, racetracks and a golf course.

It has the backing of independent TD Michael Lowry who has said it will create “enormous economic activity and create thousands of sustainable jobs.”

With permission granted, despite opposition from some locals and An Taisce, the Tipperary Development team is now setting to work on the next stages of the project which will take around three years to build.

The Twitterati have been airing their thoughts on it all:
