The Tipperary Studies 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.

Many of these documents are unique to Tipperary Studies and one of the aims of the project is to make these sources available to everyone, free of charge, whether you reside within the county of Tipperary or in any part of Ireland or the far flung reaches of the world.

Such are the range of documents and items in the collection that the project is one which is always going to be a work in progress. As items are digitised they will be made available online. To that end you are encouraged to keep visiting the site to see what is new.

The digitisation project is but one element of the work of the Tipperary Studies department. If you have some items which you would like to contribute to this project and share with people worldwide please contact a staff member for advice. Your document will be scanned and returned to you at our earliest convenience.

Tipperary Studies looks forward to contributing to the history of Tipperary in a way which has not been done before. Access to online documents is free and most of the sources presented will not be available to view elsewhere.
