Explore Cloughjordan with our free to download audio guide to the Cloughjordan Heritage Trail

Located in a picturesque corner of North West Tipperary, Cloughjordan is surrounded by lush green pastureland and damp peat bogs. The area has attracted settlers as far back as the remote prehistoric past. This Abarta Audioguide will show how Cloughjordan became established as a town during the medieval period, and how a brave crusader gave the town its unusual name. You will also hear about how John Harrison began the process of modernisation after the Cromwellian Wars and how the railway connected Cloughjordan to the furthest reaches of the world.

The guide also introduces the story of Thomas MacDonagh, Cloughjordan’s most famous son, a loving father and husband, a teacher, a poet and one of the leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising, a martyr for Irish freedom. You will also hear about modern life in Cloughjordan, and hear the story of the feared Toomevara Hurling Team.
