Throwback Thursday in Tipperary - who can you remember from the summer of 1980?

Throwback Thursday this week is from July 5, 1980, all of 41 years ago now.


One of the images  (above) that we carried on our front page that week was from Kilsheelan where two sets of twins received their first Holy Communion at Gambonsfield Church. They were Niall and Carol Collum, and Evelyn and Josephine O’Driscoll.


Pupils of Fifth Class in the Presentation Convent in Carrick-on-Suir were captured by photographer Tom Grace displaying some of the beautiful embroidery and crochet work they had produced during the school year.

Included are Jim, John and Paddy Smith, Sean O’Dwyer, Noel and Brian Butler, Jimmy Hannon, Jim Drohan, Jack Lawlor and Tom Brett. Photo: Tom Grace.
