Thurles land zoned for a park sold by the Catholic Church for development

The Tipperary star and tipp fm report today that the local authority who had been in negotiations with St. Patricks College to purchase land for a park were informed at last nights meeting that the land had been sold to a third party (a developer)
The Catholic church for the past week in Holycross has been promoting and sermonising about the need to build a better community and reach out to god and each other.Now it seems that the Catholic Church wants to reach out to the developers and deny the community a town park.
The land is behind the Thurles swimming pool and borders the river suir. This land had been zoned under the town plan as a community space.
