Tipperary County Council is delighted to be able to share with you the newly digitised Minute Book of the Corporation of Clonmel, 1687 to 1718.
‘We in the Tipperary County Archives are delighted to be able to share with you the newly digitised Minute book of the Corporation of Clonmel, 1687 – 1718. Minutes of Council meetings give a unique and intriguing insight into a time and place, and the period in question is a particularly interesting one in the history of Clonmel. It makes for fascinating reading and we hope you enjoy it’, says Joe MacGrath, Chief Executive, Tipperary County Council.
The Minute book made its way from Clonmel Corporation into private hands, via the Moore family, who were at the heart of the development of Clonmel Town and Borough during the late 1600s and particularly in the 1700s.
According to Councillor Michael Smith, An Cathaoirleach, Tipperary County Council, ‘We are delighted that the book has once again found its way back into public ownership and we would like to express our thanks to Creative Ireland Programme, Tipperary, for funding the digitisation of the book and allowing us to share it with the public at large’.
The minute book has been beautifully conserved by the fantastic conservators at Muckross Bookbindery, to whom we are extremely grateful and will be accessible via the Tipperary County Archives webpage from Tuesday 2nd February.
