Tipperary Hosts 18th Tipperariana Book Fair

Fethard-BooksTipperary will host the 18th Tipperariana 2013 Book Fair,  Ireland’s premier annual fair, in The Fethard Ballroom, Fethard, Co Tipperary on Sunday next February 10th.

This event, which is hosted annually by Fethard Historical Society, begins in the afternoon and will run from 2.00pm until 6.00pm.

Entry fee to visitors is just €2.00 and this year’s Fair boasts over thirty book dealers from all over Ireland, all anxious to both buy and sell.

As usual there will be a Café in full operation and a piano player will be on hand to serenade all visitors during the course of the afternoon.

So if you happen to have a loose copy of “Wuthering Heights” for sale, just lying around currently gathering dust and preferably personally signed by Emily Jane Brontë herself, then Fethard, Co. Tipperary is most definitely the place to be on Sunday afternoon next.

If you are buying, there are plenty of bargains also, in fact I got a copy of the hard to find “The Felons Track,” written by Michael Doheny (Latter a member of the Young Ireland movement.) at last year’s Tipperariana fair.
