Archival History

The earlier parts of this series were originally collected by the County
Museum in Clonmel in two instalments. They acquired 1899 – 1952 in 1984
and 1952 – 1985 in 1991. An Archive service was established permanently in
2000 and it was to the Archives volumes 1985 – 2006 were deposited on a
phased basis by Corporate Affairs. In 2011 the County Museum de-
accessioned a number of items to the County Archives which included its
collection of South Tipperary County Council Minute Books.



Administrative History
Under the Local Government (Ireland) Act 1898, the Grand Juries were
abolished and replaced with County, Urban and Rural District Councils. The
County Councils were to take on all local government duties discharged by
the Grand Jury. The Rural District Council would have responsibility for public
works, public health and labourers cottages until their abolition in 1925 when
their functions were taken over by the County Councils. The Urban district


                                                                              1
councils took charge of health and housing in urban areas. The Boards of
Guardians retained control of poor relief, workhouse hospitals and
dispensaries until these functions were transferred to the Boards of Health
and Public Assistance in 1925 and remained until 1942 when they were taken
over by the Council. These councils were to be elected by an electorate that
was made up of male and female ratepayers, non rate paying male occupiers
and lodgers. All eligible voters could stand for election. The last meeting of the
Grand Jury took place in the Courthouse in Clonmel on 4 March 1899. The
first election of members to the new Council took place on 6 April 1899 and 57
candidates were put forward for 23 seats. As well as elected members the
Council was also made up of those elected Chairmen of the Rural District
Councils of Clonmel, Cashel, Carrick on Suir, Clogheen, Gortnahoe,
Slieveardagh and Tipperary, 3 representatives of the Grand Jury and 2 co-
opted by the Council. The first meeting of the County Council took place on 22
April 1899 in Clonmel Courthouse. Edward Cummins was elected first
Chairman. One of the first resolutions of the Council was to call for Home
Rule for Ireland. The Council was dissolved in 1934 and between 1934 and
1942 the affairs of the Council were run by a Commissioner Patrick J Meghen.
The County Management Act 1940 saw the appointment of a County
Manager who was initially appointed as Manager of North and South
Tipperary County Councils, provision was also made to have an Assistant
County Manager like Dublin and Cork as the county had 2 councils and 7
urban authorities. A ministerial order brought an end to the single County
Manager for both councils with effect from 1 April 1969. The minutes through
the years reflect the changes that have taken place in the structure and the
functions of the Council.


Content and Structure
Scope and Content
Minutes record proceedings of the County Council meetings including
members in attendance, guests (where applicable) and details decisions and
resolutions taken by the Council. It also details the election of
Chairmen/Cathaoirleach as well as Vice Chairman/Leas Cathaoirleach and
appointments of councillors to various committees and boards in the council
and outside. Meetings were initially held on a quarterly basis to begin with
before eventually being held monthly which is the practice today. In the
majority of volumes proceedings of various committees are included as well
as any special meetings of the council which occur from time to time. The
collection is complete from 1899 to 2006. The Minute book for 1920 IE
STCA/1/1/10 however, contains only the minutes for one meeting held on 29
September 1920, and while it also contains the proceedings of the
committees it is not signed. The subsequent book IE STCA/1/1/11 includes
the September minutes and first item in the November meeting relates to the
removal of a number of items including two minute books from the secretary‟s
office by the R.I.C. During the period of Commissioner Meghen minutes were
kept as normal but without the inclusion of committees‟ proceedings; these
were kept with minutes and orders in folders, so for every volume of minutes
there is a corresponding folder or part of a folder. The minutes kept by the
Commissioner deal purely with the business of the Council and do not


                                                                                2

significance which was the case with the Councillors.
