On the 8th of March, we delivered an inception talk over zoom about the intriguing ‘Tipperary IRA Map’. This map which was in the possession of a local family for decades, has over two hundred markings on it which may relate to IRA activity in South Tipperary in the 20th century. As part of Tipperary County Council’s Decade of Centenaries Program, we are working with the local community on this project to try and uncover some of the meanings behind the marks.
Our project began with an inception talk, which can be viewed below. It covers a range of topics, including the background of the Landscapes of Revolution Project, previous projects, the background of the map, what the markings on the map look like and future events we have planned.
It was great to see so many local people interested in this project and suggesting what some of the markings could mean. If you were unable to attend this talk or would like to see it again, the recording of the presentation can be viewed below.
