Some 50 members of Fingal Walking Club have arrived here in Thurles today, with many of these visitors remaining within our midst over the coming weekend and into the early part of next week.

These welcome visitors are staying at the Anner Hotel, Business and Leisure Centre, situated on the Dublin Rd, east of Thurles town and as I write some are enjoying a quiet stroll in the hills above the picturesque village of Upperchurch.

This visiting group, organised by Active Breaks Ireland, will be met later this evening by personnel representing St. Mary’s Famine museum; latter who will both welcome our guests and brief them on matters pertaining to the historical important of this part of Co. Tipperary.

On Sunday next, June 21st, this group will also undertake a guided walking tour of Thurles town centre, visiting amongst other places St Mary’s Famine Museum and Lár na Páirce GAA museum.

Welcome to Thurles, Co Tipperary.

    As a member of the walking group and a first time visitor to Thurles, the tour was excellent. It left one with a deep sense of the history of the town and its surroundings based both on the exhibition on display in St Mary’s Famine Church and the excellent in depth commentary from Mr George Willoughby. Congratulations to all concerned .
