Carrick on Suir Business Association and the Carrick-on-Suir Tourism and Economic Development Committee have organised Guided Historic Town Walks with local historian Tom Walsh starting on Wednesdays July and August at 2.30pm, tickets can be bought at The Heritage Centre on the main street in Carrick-on-Suir.

The full tour takes about two hours and starts from Carrick-on-Suir Heritage Centre and takes in the Town Wall, William Street, New Street, Castle Street, Ormond Castle, Main Street, the two bridges, Carrickbeg, the West Gate, Sean Kelly Square and the former workhouse site on the Clonmel Road. Tom’s potted history lesson of the town from its medieval origins in the 12th century to the present day is interspersed with plenty of interesting anecdotes and nuggets of social history, some based on his own memories and experiences growing up in the town.
