Tipperary County Museum creates spectacular Exhibition: 150 years of the Clonmel Show
Spanning the years 1865 – 2015, Tipperary County Museum situated in Mick Delahunty Square, Clonmel has put both International and Local events in context, covering many genres and making the exhibition accessible to many interested groups. The exhibition details significant events or developments through the Clonmel Show’s history, such as:
The research which Marie McMahon, Museum Curator has undertaken, portrays the early committee members of the Cattle Show and later Clonmel District Agricultural Society, as hard working, pioneering innovators. Their meticulous attention to detail can be seen in the many artefacts on display such as the minute books, shareholder books, catalogues and the many beautiful perpetual trophies, fine leather saddles and robust riding clothes…
The Clonmel Show’s Exhibition is educational, innovative, fun & vibrant. The Museum would like to extend an invitation to local schools, community groups, active retirement groups, local businesses and visitors to pop along to the museum and see what Clonmel was like 150 years ago.
This year’s Clonmel Show takes place on Sunday 5th July 2015 and should prove to be a fun day out for all the family…
