The Office of Public Works (OPW) has just announced that all the heritage sites operated by the OPW in Ireland will be free on the first Wednesday of every month in 2012. The OPW operated this scheme last year and it was so successful that it has decided it will be operated again this year.
The following is a list of the heritage sites that will be free in Tipperary during the offer;
