The Tipperary Historical Journal, since its inception, has published new research on Co. Tipperary spanning a multitude of disciplines. It is virtually impossible to describe the range and breadth of material the Journal has covered since the first issue in 1988, although you might start by looking at the list of articles in each Journal year by year. However, the short descriptions below of some of the Journals by our late Editor, Marcus Bourke, give a good introduction to the subjects you can expect to find between the covers of the Journal. (These extracts are taken from various Society Newsletters over the years: the Newsletters are reproduced in full elsewhere on this site).
