Tipperary Old IRA Map Upcoming Object Recording & Memory Sharing Evening

Join us on the 12th of May at our free Object Recording and Memory Sharing Evening in Halla na Féile, Cashel, Co. Tipperary (Eircode E25 WC59). The event will begin at 6 pm, and the evening will be spent sharing the latest research on the mysterious ‘Old IRA Map’ and hearing your thoughts, stories, and memories of the IRA in south Tipperary.

We are also encouraging attendees to bring along any objects they may have that are connected to the War of Independence and the Civil War. This could include a letter written by a member of the IRA, clothing they may have worn or medals they were later awarded. 

On some of our previous object recording days in Cork and Tipperary, we were shown fascinating items, such as a 20th-century proclamation, medals and crucibles for bomb-making (see images below). Any item you have, no matter how big or small, will be of great interest at the Object Recording and Memory Sharing Evening.

The Object Recording and Memory Sharing Evening event is freely open to all at Halla na Féile (Eircode E25 WC59) between 6 and 9 pm on Thursday the 12th of May 2022

The Tipperary Old IRA Map Project is funded as part of Tipperary County Council’s Decade of Centenaries Programme with support from the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media. This event is being delivered by Abarta Heritage as part of the Landscapes of Revolution Project.
