Horse and Jockey Thurles Remembers

A pictorial record, compiled by ‘Horse and Jockey Remembers its Past,’ committee will be launched on November 24th, at the Horse and Jockey Hotel, Thurles, Co Tipperary.

Horse and Jockey Pictorial Record

This new publication is an amazing collection of some five hundred photographs, in both colour and black/white. The photographs span many decades with images of local people at work, at play, at home, at school, in group settings, social and sporting occasions or involved in club activities.

The memories of the older generation will be stirred and the younger generation will glean a glimpse of the lives and times long past. This is not, strictly speaking, a history book about the ‘most famous cross-roads in Ireland,’ but ‘moments in time,’ captured forever through the camera lens. It is also a very fine visual record of the profound changes that have occurred in this area during the past one hundred years.

This publication will make a most excellent Christmas gift especially for those exiled and living abroad.

The members of the organising committee involved in this venture are: – Liam Ó Donnchú, Tom Egan, John Hassett, Mary Roche, Richard O’Keeffe, Connie O’Keeffe and Averil Clarke.

This unique photo collection sells for €20 and is available from local outlets or from www.horseandjockeyhotel.com.
