Why Tipperary?

LIT has two campuses in Tipperary: one in Thurles town and one in Clonmel town.

Thurles town is located at the foot of the Silvermine Mountains, on the banks of the River Suir. Thurles is famed for both its dedication to Irish sports, but also its focus on heritage, culture and the arts.

Clonmel is situated an hour south of Thurles, and is one of the largest towns in the south-east of Ireland. It is a town where modern commerce is embraced by the walls that have guarded the town since the 14th century.
