Tipperary Craft Strategy 2018 – 2020 Launched

The Tipperary Craft Strategy 2018 – 2020 was launched on Monday 5/Mar/2018 in the Great Hall at Cahir Castle. Promotion of Tipperary Crafts is to be facilitated through four pillars – Promotion, Practice, Infrastructure, and Awareness.
It is an interesting read with each sector of the craft business taking responsibility for their part of the development.
The booklet explaining the new strategy is now available through the Tipperary County Council office and Local Enterprise Offices. Or click here to view.
