Photos of North Tipperary's heritage

Our heritage is the totality of what we have inherited from those who went before us. The heritage of future generations is what we pass on to them. Our decisions, and the actions arising out of them, are what will influence the quality of that heritage

Heritage is defined in the 1995 Heritage Act as including the following areas: flora, fauna, wildlife habitats, landscapes, geology, heritage gardens and parks, inland waterways archaeological monuments, archaeological objects, wrecks, heritage objects (including archives), and architectural heritage. The North Tipperary Heritage Forum agreed to expand this further to bring in the areas of folk lore and folk life.
