The Ragg – a jewel

January 13th, 2011 by The Ragg

The following is a letter written to & published by  the editor of The Tipperary Star some time ago.

‘Sir, Munster Final Day is special. There is no doubt about that. For those of us making our way from Limerick, the road has little cheer until we come to The Ragg. The Ragg is a traditional stopping-off landmark. Do the people who live there know how lucky they are?

The Ragg Lounge is a most enjoyable experience. It was hard to leave and we had a chance to talk to the locals. The very fine hurling field is just down the road. ‘There are days when you play there and the stand is full and days when you play in the rain in front of nobody at all. But there is a great sense of comradeship’, a chap in his early twenties told us.

Indeed, there seemed to be a great sense of community and comradeship in The Ragg. It is both a picturesque and a friendly place. The land is flat with uninterrupted views over rolling acres. It has real visual charm with well attended flower beds, stretching far along the roadsides. I didn’t have a chance to walk the Golden Mile but, when I enquired, I was told that it was for the community, for relaxation and healthy walks.

It’s hard to leave a place like The Ragg and it is with a sense of emotion I write this letter to the Tipperary Star.

The Ragg is a jewel on a journey to Thurles.’
