The Tipperary Town Revitalisation Task Force Manager, Michael Begley, has welcomed the funding awarded to Tipp Town of €371,000 from the Arts Council under the Creative Places Programme.
“This is a tremendous opportunity for Tipperary Town to build capacity in the arts and creative sectors over the next number of years and into the future.
“This is one of the key objectives in our Strategy and Action Plan for the town, and this funding and partnership with the Arts Council will underpin that objective by providing a platform for people in the town to engage with the arts.
