Tipperary Heritage Centre in Carrick-on-Suir
This former Protestant church, now restored as a heritage centre, was once part of the Pre-Reformation burial ground and church site of Carrick Mor. The centre is situated on the main street of Carrick-on-Suir in County Tipperary.
Its heritage-rich gravestones include a memorial to Thomas Butler, who died in 1604, an illegitimate son of Thomas, tenth Earl of Ormonde. Buried here too is Dorothea Herbert, 1770-1829, daughter of the eighteenth-century rector and author of 'Retrospections'. Many local artefacts and photographs are on display.
Carrick-On-Suir Ancestry was founded in 1994 to assist those who wished to trace their ancestry. Genealogical research is a time-consuming process and normally takes about eight to twelve weeks to achieve a result with our committed and experienced researchers.
For more information on the heritage centre and access to trace your ancestry please visit the Heritage Centre page.
The heritage centre is currently being redeveloped while remaining accessible.
