This years' Culture Night celebrations in Clonmel took place on Friday 22nd September in various venues & locations around the town. The sun came out for the occasion and a steady flow of culture vultures ensured that all the events were very well attended. "I'm over the moon!" commented South Tipperary Art Centre's recently appointed manager Cliona Maher, who was delighted with the event. "I would like to thank Paul Kelly and everyone at Clonmel Theatre Guild, Diarmuid and all at the White Memorial Theatre, and Rev Barbara Fryday for opening up the side gate for the first time in years".
Clonmel Theatre Guild presented "The Chronicles of Trollope" which saw the Victorian Author wandering through the streets of Clonmel, where he once lived, introducing us to some of his best loved characters along the way. The performance took viewers along a trail that led to the White Memorial Theatre, and was a wonderful celebration of Clonmel's rich cultural heritage and literary past.
South Tipperary Arts Centre also hosted 'Apple Treasures', a trail of apple trees around Clonmel, celebrating the towns many connections with the fruit. It was the culmination of a project exploring Clonmel's apple heritage, and a specially commissioned film by Eimear King documenting the project was unveiled on the night.
Artist Brigid Teehan of Beehouse Arts showcased a selection of visual art in the atmospheric Scotts Church, on Anglesea St. The pieces represent recent work by the artist which explore various themes and tensions surrounding the private/public body.
Vincent Hannon, Artist and Photographer took up residence in the Main Guard for the evening, offering free portraits to visitors. With the sitters permission the images will form part of the National Library collection.
Tipperary County Museum hosted a lecture with Dr. Ann Wilson, which tied in with their ongoing highly rated exhibition 'A Message in Time'. The talk examined a collection of postcards sent to a young middle-class woman living and working in Dublin between 1903 and 1908. They throw light on how ‘small’, unexceptional individuals dealt with everyday family, social and work life, and how they viewed and negotiated the ‘big’ important issues of the time in Ireland, such as economic survival, emigration, nationalism and the role of women.

Switch on Culture Night in Clonmel as arts and cultural organisations open their doors to host a programme of free evening entertainment, as part of an all-island celebration of arts, heritage and culture.
The centre of Clonmel will come alive on Friday September 22nd, kicking off with ‘Walk a Mile in my Shoes’ at 3pm, an LIT Clonmel/Tudor Artisan Hub project. This is an exciting community event, which will create an installation of shoes. From Parnell Street, the ½ mile long trail of shoes will end at the LIT Clonmel campus. Anyone can take part. Each person is asked to donate and decorate a shoe symbolising themselves or someone they know/used to know.
Two separate arts trails are coordinated by South Tipperary Arts Centre. The ‘Apple Treasures’ Trail & Exhibition is a special Culture Night commission for 2Cando Arts featuring an exhibition at the Arts Centre on Nelson Street all about apples to surprise, delight and inform us on the treasures of Clonmel’s unique Apple Heritage. With performer Louise Garcia as Lady Apple Pip, 2Cando Arts invite you to discover the apple treasures trail from 5pm, with 17 trees to reflect the 17 varieties of apples grown locally. Taking in Parnell Street, Mitchell Street, the Friary Car Park, and Dowds Lane, you can also meet Lady Apple Pip at the Arts Centre. Apple-themed refreshments will be served and where Eimear King’s specially commissioned short film, ‘Apple Treasures’ will be screened throughout the evening.
Starting at 5pm at the old Post House on Gladstone St, actors from Clonmel Theatre Guild will bring you on a literary journey of discovery through the novels of writer Anthony Trollope, who was postmaster in Clonmel in the 1840s. In ‘The Chronicles of Trollope’, the character of Trollope will bring you to visit the Grantlys at the Main Guard and Rev Harding at Old St Mary’s Church, finishing with a trip to the White Memorial Theatre with Phineas Finn and Mme Goesler, where St Mary’s Choral Society will have a screening of Trollope’s work in an atmospheric Victorian theatre. The actors will repeat the trail until 7pm.
Finally, Tipperary County Museum hosts a lecture by Dr. Ann Wilson, at 7:30pm which will discuss picture postcard collections of a young woman's life in Edwardian Times. A fascinating talk which looks at the everyday family life, social and work life and how they dealt with economic factors, emigration, nationalism and the role of women in society. This lecture ties in with the acclaimed new exhibition ‘A Message in Time’ which runs until June 2018 and admission is free.
