Tipperary casino complex gets approval

We have previously reported in our Irish Casino News section the possibility of a massive casino complex at Two Mile Borris in Co. Tipperary but now it appears that approval has been given and construction work could start as soon as soon as Autumn this year. The government has first to give legislative approval but this is not expected to be a problem after the planning authorities (Bord Pleanala) have agreed the proposal. There were of course many objections to the plans reported in the Irish Casino News including the National Roads Authority who are concerned about traffic and the Office of Public Works who are concerned about flooding as well as the impact on a small village of some 500 people but it seems that planning authorities are not concerned and with casino gambling already having a firm foothold in the country both at betting shops and of course online casinos the possible positive benefits of employment and income outweigh the negatives. In October last year the Department of Justice published a report in casino news stating concern about compulsive gambling, criminality and debt but whether these problems will increase remains an issue, of more concern must be where the customers will come from; at we doubt Irish people will travel any distance to visit a land based casino when more choice of casino games is available in the comfort of your own home from online casinos and although people travel from far and wide to visit Las Vegas, the casino side is only part of what is basically a holiday destination. The major investor for the project which is expected to cost around €500 million is Richard Quirke who already has interests in the gambling world in Ireland and he has been gathering support for the project for several years but now it seems it may come to a conclusion..
