Tipperary Series 13 cropped

Tipperary Studies holds an annual Tipperary People and Places Lecture series throughout the winter months, commencing in October and running through to the following March. Lectures take place on the third Tuesday of each month at 7.30pm, in the Gallery of the Source Library, Thurles. Each season the Series covers a myriad of different subjects that range from the ancient to the  modern, each with its own specific relevance to the historical events and characters that have forged the rich history of this county through the centuries. Over the last 10 years the Series has become known for its knowledgeable, entertaining speakers and very healthy attendances. Archaeology, politics, land ownership, sport, the arts, social issues and the Tipperary diaspora are amongst some of the many and varied topics that are addressed each season.
