Over 30 book dealers from all over Ireland are present, selling mostly antiquarian and second hand books, but every type of book is to be found including new, paperback and children's books. Authors of Tipperary books, published in the preceding year will be present to sell and sign their books, including the author of The Tipperariana Book of the Year which is announced in January every year.

Its with great sadness that we announce the death of our beloved Mascot, Betty Davies, who lost her young life, due to a passing speeding car outside our home and office yesterday. She was well loved and missed by the Felix Rare Book Staff.
We are setting up a fund in her name, to fund a sanctuary for the many abandoned Cats in our area. If you are moved after you watch our Tribute to Betty, then please Donate what you feel is right.
