We were sightseeing in Clonmel when we came across this building whick looked to be of interest. On entering, we were greeted by a lady staff member who advised us that there was no charge. We looked around and discovered the history of the building, which is documented elsewhere. Worth a visit. Very clean toilets.

This is an interesting building and makes a nice half-hour stop during which you can learn some of the history not only of the building but also of the area. I was lucky to arrive when Vanessa was on duty at the desk. She knows so much just off the top of her head. She gave me a mini guided tour showing details of the front of the building. It is also clear that she is truly interested in the history herself. There are fascinating photos displayed upstairs. Vanessa mentioned that there are often performances put on in the building so do check local listings as I imagine it's a wonderful event space. There is a lift to access the 2nd floor.

This is a very imposing landmark in the centre of Clonmel and has a very pleasing look about it. So much so that when Chris Collins made a miniature replica of it I bought it.

Stopped for an hour in the bustling town of Clonmel. This is a lovely building in the heart of the town. Run by OPW - always a good thing. Very interesting WW1 exhibition on when we visited.
