About Us

It was in 1990 that Dr. Tom Quillinan, Mr. Cunnimgham and Matty Ryan came together to try and start an organistaion to help people with cancer in North Tipperary. At the time , Dr Quillinan had a large number of cancer patients in his area and he saw first hand the distress it was causing families.

In June 1990 a committee was formed in the Anner Hotel in Thurles and the North Tipperary Hospice Movement was founded. 30 years on the organisation has grown from strength to strength and is still living up to its original values of providing a vital quality service to the people of North Tipperary.

30 years ago the committee started to do fundraising throughout North Tipperary and this started with small events like card games, dances and cake sales. Our major event was a trip to Tralee on horseback which took place over a few days and collected a grand total of £21,500 at the time and this was a major event...

Since 1990 the organisation has grown tremendously. The budget needed each year is a massive €400,000 but once again just like 30 years ago the lovely people of North Tipperary put their shoulder to the wheel and do all types of fundraising for the Hospice.

Each year we manage to reach our target and for this the organisation is very proud to continue the valuable and much needed free of charge services for all the people of North Tipperary.
