The Story Of The Gaelic Games | Slievenamon Road, Thurles
Lár na Páirce is an exciting visitor centre designed and equipped to tell the story of Gaelic Games from earliest times to the present day. It is located just off Liberty Square in a most imposing, elegant 19th century building. This fine cut-stone edifice was built for the National Bank about the time of the G.A.A.’s foundation. Thurles Development Association, Shannon Development and Tipperary G.A.A acquired the building with the intention of developing a visitor attraction for the town. President Mary Robinson officially opened this interpretative centre of Gaelic Games in 1994. The various exhibits invite the visitor to experience the excitement and colour of Hurling, Gaelic Football, Camogie and Handball.
