Citizen’s Corner – Our Pride in Our Town

Published 12 months ago 29th August 2021 by Caitriona Kenny

What do we love about Tipperary town? Tipperary Town is quoted as one of the most architecturally intact 19th century Market Town in the Country... just look up above the shop fronts and discover beautiful architraves and artwork. Out & about, I asked random people what their views were.

Colette O’Halloran, Tipperary Town born and bred, was born on Davitt Street, Tipperary Town, commonly known as the New Road close to the historic New Town and directly across from The Plan. The Tipperary Hills were her backyard playground.

“We have so many wonderful cultural, social and sporting organisations and great shopping experiences. But the pride of Tipperary Town is our community ethos and our thoughtful, helpful, caring neighbours. With the friends I’ve made and being among the Tipperary Town people, I wouldn’t live anywhere else in the world. I love my town.”
Stevie O’Donnell – Sports Editor at Tipp Mid West Radio and PRO of The Tipperary Vintage Rally; “Originally from Galbally, I spent a long time living in London working as a taxi driver and I’m gone from Galbally nearly forty years.

I have lived in Tipperary Town for fourteen years, and to me Tipperary has so much to offer. In my role as Sport’s Editor at Tipp Mid-WestRadio, I have so many options to cover in so many different sports including Soccer, GAA Rugby, Greyhound Racing, Athletics, Tennis, Golf and Pitch and Putt, Swimming, Sport’s Complex and much more. There are excellent primary and post primary schools, a great commitment by local organisations including the Tipperary Village Rally and as I love walking; we have great routes around the town including Tipp Hills. Tipperary Town is the only town in Ireland that holds the prestigious All Ireland Churn Rolling Championships that attracts huge crowds. It has great restaurants, and the people are so nice and great craic.”

Proprietor Kate Barry of Class Above Boutique, Main Street, Tipperary Town; “I opened my Class Above boutique in 2017 and whilst being nervous, I wanted the challenge, and I must say the loyalty of the Tipperary people and districts has been phenomenal. The town is improving yearly, and we have a great bunch of loyal, decent people in this town that make our town better daily… long may it continue.”
