Farney Castle, Holycross, Thurles, Tipperary

As discussed on Tuesday last here on Thurles.Info, the recently formed Hidden Tipperary Tourism group held their monthly meeting at Farney Castle, latter situated close to Holycross village.

Like so many of Mid Tipperary’s wonderful tourist attractions, those of us residing within easy reach of such fabulous venues are often unaware of their true significance or content, choosing instead to visit them only when relatives and friends come to stay from overseas.

It is not because we do not wish to support such local historic and treasured venues, but rather we choose to ignore same because of our close proximity, knowing that we can gain easy access to them quickly at any time into the future. Perhaps now is the time to change this pattern, tendency, convention, routine, (Call it what you want), fashioned by localised Tipperary residents, because of this same local proximity issue and encourage residents of Mid-Tipperary and its environs to check out what is actually available on their own very doorstep.

Hidden Tipperary Chairperson Mr Tom Noone, has now placed this topic for further discussion on his agenda for the next tourism meeting on Tuesday, March 4th, at 11:00 am at the Cormackstown Heritage Centre.
