Tipperary
Culture and Creativity Plan 2017

The sixth-largest county in Ireland, Tipperary enjoys a richness and diversity of culture and heritage that has inspired generations of its citizens down through the centuries. Actors Kerry Condon and Pat Shortt, tenor Frank Patterson, and a bevy of musicians from the Clancy Brothers to Shane MacGowan have all contributed their distinct creative energies, inspired by the built and natural assets of their home county, to place Tipperary firmly on the map.

With deep roots in music, art, poetry, drama, literature and folklore, Tipperary’s foundations of ever-evolving expression will contribute enormously to the five-year Creative Ireland Culture and Creativity Plan for the county, engaging the public at each step to establish a strong and sustainable cultural network for all to enjoy.

Tipperary enjoys a richness and diversity of culture and heritage that has inspired generations of its citizens down through the centuries. 

Residents and visitors of Tipperary in 2017 can look forward to projects and events such as the Clonmel Junction Festival - a week-long summer celebration of music, theatre, street performance, comedy, visual and art and much more - and the Cahir Castle Summer Theatre Project, which throughout August will present a series of weekly theatre events set in the atmospheric surrounds of the castle.

This is a first edition of the Local Authority Culture and Creativity Plan and is subject to change.
