River Suir, South Tipperary – An economic + cultural amenity

 Landscape Interface Studio (LIS), Kingston University developed and facilitated a series of community participation workshop – “The Lay of the Land’  –  to reveal the potential of the River Suir and these were delivered as part of the Suir River Cafe during the Clonmel Junction Festival last summer, 2011.

The project is a great opportunity for the community to focus on the river — one of the key assets in the county — and to develop it as an economic cultural amenity for both the community and visitors alike.”   Cllr. Michael Fitzgerald, Chairman of STCC.

This video featured some of the local stakeholders who are now developing the River Suir Action Plan.  The Suir River Café was a collaboration between South Tipperary County Council Heritage Office, Landscape Interface Studio , Kingston University and local artist Lyn Mather.   It was a novel interactive Café where members of the public could observe, discuss, engage and participate in a number of outreach workshops led by the LIS team.  The Café was supported by South Tipperary County Council (STCC) the Heritage Council and the Interreg IVC programme project ‘Waterways Forward’.

A series of  documents were created following the six workshops and can be viewed by clicking on following links.
