About Thurles

Thurles is a vibrant and prosperous town, located in North Tipperary. Serving a population of 8,000, it is a great, central location in which to live and study. Located on the River Suir, Thurles boasts many cultural and recreational facilities – the Source Arts Centre and Theatre, a modern leisure centre, a multi-screen cinema complex, the superb Cabragh Wetlands as well as the renowned Semple Stadium, the spiritual home of hurling, a stone’s throw from the LIT Thurles campus. In Liberty Square in the heart of Thurles is Hayes Hotel which held the first meeting of the GAA in 1884 and still remains a popular meeting point for the thousands of GAA followers that descend on Thurles each summer. The local Lár na Páirce GAA visitor centre tells the story of Gaelic Games from its foundation to the present day and is well worth a visit.
