IT’S A SUIR THING: Clonmel Junction Arts Festival 2018 brings it all back home for 7 days of culture and summer fun on the banks of the River Suir, July 2 – 8 TICKETS ON SALE (from tonight - Wed 23 May): Announcing Clonmel Junction Arts Festival 2018 - Tipperary’s heritage town blossoms in a full spectrum of inspirational culture this July: Clonmel Junction Arts Festival (CJAF) turns 18 years old this year and today announces its jam-packed 2018 programme for its annual week-long celebration of culture, and of Clonmel.
