Thomas MacDonagh Museum
Cloughjordan, Co. Tipperary
The Thomas MacDonagh Museum, located in the small town of Cloughjordan, explores the life and legacy of Thomas MacDonagh.

Best known for his participation and execution during the 1916 Easter Rising, MacDonagh was influential in a vast arena of change in early 20th century Ireland. This influence was continued by his family who are introduced to visitors across the museum.

On entering the foyer a doubled sided display brings you through the events of 1916 which is complemented by a range of artefacts from life in Cloughjordan at the time. Throughout the museum a wide range of objects are used to highlight family stories. The pianoforte is a key item, once belonging to Marie-Louise MacDonagh and which she used to teach music.
