Calls For Public Input On Tipperary Heritage Plan


Tipperary County Council is developing an all-county Heritage Plan and is now seeking public contributions in order to fully inform the preparation of the Heritage Plan. Tipperary County Council says this will assist in the planning and delivery heritage actions in the county. The Council are seeking to establish why our Heritage is important to people in the county and what strategic aspects should be given priority in the county.

This could include raising awareness and communicating about our heritage, conservation, climate change and heritage, recording Tipperary’s heritage, traditional skills, digital guides to our heritage, heritage led regeneration, engaging with young people and new communities and resourcing heritage.

The 1995 Heritage Act defines Heritage as; Monuments, archaeological objects, heritage objects, architectural heritage, flora, fauna, wildlife habitats, landscapes, seascapes, wrecks, geology, heritage gardens and parks, inland waterways.  That is not all of course, there is also a wealth of intangible heritage in our customs, traditions, games, songs and folklore.

The public can contribute via an online survey now available on the Council website or attend one of 5 drop in clinics being held between May 30th and June 6th to meet with staff from the county Heritage Office.  This survey will be available until Monday 19th June 2023.

Heritage personnel will be available for over the course of five days as follows: 

  • Tuesday 30th May, Thurles Municipal District Office
  • Wednesday 31st May, Tipperary Municipal District Office
  • Thursday 1st June, Civic Offices, Clonmel
  • Friday 2nd June, Carrick on Suir Municipal District Office
  • Tuesday 6th June, Civic Offices, Nenagh

The public can attend at any time during the day but are asked to book a time slot by emailing by calling 0818 06 5000.
