Tipp Town Daffodil Day 2013

2013 Tipperary Town Daffodil Day will be held on Friday, March 22 in the Assembly Hall, Community Centre, with the entrance via Blind Street. We would love you all to join us once again and help us to reach our goal for the Irish Cancer Society. Your participation really makes a big difference. In this recession it can be more difficult to donate but all funds raised in Tipperary are used for cancer patients in Tipperary.

For those of you who would like to donate daffodils, they can be left into the Assembly Hall on Thursday, March 21 between 2pm to 4pm or before lunch on Friday 26.

We rely on our wonderful volunteers and friends who take to the streets each year to sell daffodils. We thank them for their continued dedication.

New volunteers are always welcome. For further information contact:

Tipperary Vintage and Custom Rally

The Tipperary Vintage and Custom Rally takes place Easter weekend at the Tipperary Racecourse, Limerick Junction. The rally is forging ahead this year has become a firm favourite amongst all those with an interest in vintage and custom machinery as well as the public as a whole. A great day out for families with many attractions including a motocross team demonstrating their skills over various obstacles, Gerry Humphries and his stunt plane, the popular dog show with a class and prizes for all types. Following the success of the custom and modified car section in 2012 there will be an even greater turn out of ‘souped-up’ and kitted out cars on show to marvel at.

The main raffle major prize is a brand new ‘Rider’ 50cc moped. The entire event raises money for South Tipperary Hospice and other local charities. Full details of the Vintage Rally and the Bike run on Easter Saturday, March 30 may be found at www.tipprally.com or on Facebook.
