Written answers (Question to Defence)

The former barracks in Nenagh is no longer required for military purposes. In accordance with Government policy and Department of Defence's practice to dispose of such surplus properties, matters relating to the disposal of Nenagh Barracks are currently being progressed.

Following application, the Tipperary County Registrar’s Office issued a Deed of Assurance conveying the freehold title of the property to the Minister for Defence. The Department of Defence now intends to lodge an application for First Registration with the Land Registry.

Upon completion of this application, the property will then be a Registered Title held under a folio and the Department of Defence will proceed with its disposal. In that regard, the Department would be willing to consider the possibility of transferring the property to Tipperary County Council.
