The Common Thread cafe reopens

Following a ‘re-imagining’ period, The Common Thread Café in Parnell Street will reopen today, Wednesday, 15th with a new colour scheme and layout. To mark its fourth year in business, the café is hosting an art exhibition on the theme of The Journeys we make to coincide with this year’s Clonmel Junction Festival’s theme. A selection of works by artists in paint, print and photography are on display in the new bright space, which was re-inaugurated on Tuesday evening with an exhibition launch.
