17 reasons to be dead proud to be from Tipp

It could be Tipperary’s day!

SO TIPP TAKE on Mayo in the All-Ireland Semi-Final today.

Lots to be proud of there. And here’s some more…

1. Sure it’s the true home of the GAA

Hayes’ Hotel, Thurles, 1884. The first meeting of the GAA.

2.  The Glen of Aherlow

Those views!

3. And what about The Vee?


4. The McDonald’s outside Roscrea

Still worth a detour despite the bypass.

5. O’Donnell’s crisps

Bringing the notions to the south midlands.

7.  And not forgetting the Holy Cross Novena

Sure didn’t the lord himself pray for decent rocky road and for Tipp to get to the final?

8. Jim O’ The Mill

A pub in Upperchurch that only opens on a Thursday and always a bit of trad on the go.

9. Survived the transition into a single county unit without any carry on

North and South Riding merged without a whimper in 2014. Well done Tipp!

10. Mitchelstown Caves

Back off Cork!

11. The Rock of Cashel

Even Justin Bieber’s a fan.

12. Inch House pudding

Hand made according to an Egan family recipe.

13. Clonmel is the home of Bulmers

14. Semple Stadium

Home of Féile and the Trip to Tipp!
