Launching the new Hidden Tipperary brochure at the Thurles Chamber Enterprise Centre, Nenagh Rd, the Thurles Chamber President Mr John O’Shaughnessy congratulated the tourism group on the layout of the brochure and the attractive content published therein. He also informed the gathered assembly at this launch that for the first time a Portable Document Format File (PDF) of this brochure would now be shortly published on-line on various websites, thus allowing visitors from both at home and abroad, not only the opportunity to read same but also to print off a copy, prior to visiting the area.
Mr O’Shaughnessy stated “I believe that in the future other tourist visitor attractions in this area will join with the Hidden Tipperary Tourism Group, to also jointly market their particular attraction. Same attractions properly networked would demonstrate that Thurles and its environs is “no one stop shop,” but rather the perfect place to visit in any season, to spend a few days quietly relaxing, while visiting just some of these various and numerous wonderful venues, now shown to be on offer in this new publication, right here in our rural Hidden Tipperary.”
This first venture into such brochure networking, features the attractions; Cormackstown Heritage Centre, Holycross Abbey, Farney Castle, St Mary’s Famine and War Museum, Cabragh Wetlands, Upperchurch and Lár na Páirce GAA Museum.
All of attractions also offer a wide variety of interesting entertainment headings including; Sport, History, Culture, Scenic Countryside, Heritage, Family Fun, Walking, Climbing etc in Upperchurch, Holycross and Thurles town.
