Throwback Thursday in Tipperary - who can you remember from this pictures in 1991?

Taking part in a fundraising bed push in 1991 were they Youth Club members from throughout South Tipperary.

Our Throwback Thursday feature this week is from July of 1991.

Our main picture above features the young people of South Tipperary who were planning a bed push this time 30 years ago all for a good cause.

Eight youth clubs from the Clonmel area, all affiliated to the local section of the Waterford Regional Youth Service, were holding a bed push on Saturday, July 13, 1991.

To commemorate Youth Care Day in South Tipp, they were hoping to raise funds towards a CAT scan machine for Our Lady's Hospital for Sick Children in Crumlin, Dublin.

The push involved clubs from Clogheen, Ballylooby, Burncourt, Skeheenarinka, and four Clonmel clubs, St Oliver's, St Mary's and two from Ss Peter & Paul's.

Pictured here is Cara Wallace from Rosegreen who was selected to represent Cashel in the 1991 Pride of Tipperary Contest.
