For Heritage Week 2022 Tipperary Studies is delighted to present a selection from the huge collection of slides and photographs, taken by Fr. Tom Kennedy, Holycross in the 1960s and 1970s. The collection was recently donated to Tipperary Studies by St. Patrick’s College, Thurles.
There are 1205 images in the digital collection, depicting the restoration of Holycross Abbey, rural life in Holycross and throughout Co. Tipperary, local events such as parades, traditional dancing and dramas, sporting events, holidays in the west of Ireland and visits to monastic ruins. Visit our exhibition page at Fr Kennedy Holycross Slides
We hope you enjoy this glimpse of a vanished Ireland and we would welcome any information on people or places in the images.
