Reminiscing in Tipperary

Tipperary Age Friendly Older Peoples Council are developing a project to capture stories and tales of the past, listening to the voices of older people across County Tipperary.

Within this project we hope to capture some living history from residents in the county and we will collate this information in written, audio and video form.
This will be a fantastic opportunity to capture the living history of Older Voices in Tipperary and to share stories and reminisces of our past, growing up in the county with the younger generations and showcase how in some instance’s things have evolved but also at its core how family and friends impact positively on our lives.

In this we have 5 main areas designed to capture the memories about where you went to school, memories of growing up and family activities, where you worked and the friendships and social or sporting activities that you participated in.

The 5 main areas which also include some prompt questions:
School and growing up

  • Family Memories and Household composition
  • Work and work life
  • Relationships, Marriage, Friendships
  • Traditions Sayings and pastimes

We will circulate this project document through the older adult community groups in the county, through the nursing home and day care centres and also promote through Tipperary Public Participation Network (PPN) and partner agencies.

We have 3 methods of completing and participation,
Written: by completing the attached document and returning by email to or by post to Tipperary Age Friendly, Ballingarrane House, Cahir Road, Clonmel, Co Tipperary E91E183
