Historic Gold coins hoard returns to Carrick….


The 17th century hoard of gold coins discovered in Cooney’s Pub in Carrick-on-Suir in January will go on public display in the town’s Ormond Castle this Sunday between 12 noon and 5pm.

A series of free family events will take place around the castle throughout the afternoon to celebrate the first exhibition of the 81 coins outside the National Museum.

Visitors will enjoy a “living history” meet and greet with Black Tom Butler and Lady Elizabeth Fitzgerald, a coin minting demonstration and a display and discussions about the price of war, food and what Carrick-on-Suir was like in the 17th Century.

Coin making and hairdressing are among the activities for kids planned. After Ormond Castle, the coins will be displayed in South Tipperary County Museum, Clonmel from September 17 to October 17.
