Tipperary Studies is the local studies department of Tipperary County Council Library Service.
It is located on the first floor of The Source Library and Arts Centre, above Thurles branch Library, on Cathedral Street, Thurles. Tipperary Studies is a purpose built research library dedicated to documenting and preserving the county’s rich cultural, social, economic and sporting histories.
The published collection in Tipperary Studies consists of books, journals, newspapers and maps. Its large archival collection includes Poor Law Union records, family papers, photographs, postcards, estate records & maps, various sporting material including GAA scrapbooks and lots of other Tipperary material. We aim to offer open, friendly and easy access to Tipperary Studies collections to visitors both in person and online.
Our ongoing digitisation project aims to make available online a range of sources, both historical and genealogical, which are part of the fabric which makes up the history of Tipperary.
