St. Mary’s Famine Museum, Thurles. Tipperary.

Primary Source Education, readily available here in Thurles to students attending Primary, Secondary and Third Level educational facilities nationally, has received a huge boost this week, due to being highlighted by Irish TV.

As many Tipperary people are aware, Irish TV’s media programmes now highlight local daily happenings here in Co. Tipperary and elsewhere; broadcasting to a wide global audience.

These programmes generate interest in our county; encouraging tourists to visit, while keeping our forced emigrants, both past and more recent, up to date with regard to everyday happenings in and around our Premier County.

One of the many venues visited this month, by Irish TV’s popular programme presenter Miss Fiona O’Sullivan, was the popular Thurles tourist visitor attraction St.Mary’s Famine Museum here in Thurles.
