Limerick people invited to share history of one County Tipperary town

This hurling sliotar belongs to Paddy Williams of Kilruane MacDonaghs and is an example of items people can bring along. The sliotar was used in the National Hurling League Final won by Tipperary on 6 May 1979. The ball was painted by John McCarthy from Coolnamon.

PEOPLE from Limerick are invited to the Premier County to take in the heritage of the town of Cloughjordan.

The County Tipperary town will play host to an event on August 15 and 16 to celebrate Cloughjordan’s ‘living heritage’ and how old skills and customs are passed down to the present day.

The event takes place as part of Heritage Week 2023 and people are asked to bring an object, custom, or place with a living connection to Cloughjordan.

It could be a family heirloom that has been handed down through generations or an object of historic importance to your family and the community of Cloughjordan.

People who bring objects along will then be asked to explain why the item is important and photographs will be taken to form part of an exhibition to be held in October.

The event takes place in the Thomas MacDonagh Museum in Cloughjordan on on August 15 and 16 from 4pm to 7pm.
