An exhibition of local and national history is taking place at St Mary’s Church, Tipperary from 2-5pm every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday until August 29.

“The exhibition opened for the It’s A Long Way to Tipperary festival and as it was very popular I decided to run it again,” said Mike O’Meara, Organiser.

“The week commencing August 17, is National Heritage week and as St Mary’s is the oldest landmark and graveyard in Tipperary Town it seemed fitting to give people another chance to come and have a look at all that is on display.”

There are lots of old photographs on display that always attract curiosity and the Tipperary Musical Society have a photo quiz where you have to identify the faces. You can discover what school life was like 100 years ago and learn about the ‘New Tipperary’ and discover what life was like in Ireland from the 1870s.

“I also have the christening, marriage and burial records for St. Mary’s going back to the 1780s and the unusual side to the exhibition is showing visitors the graffiti dating back to the 1890s,” said Mike.
