Hi Daniel, I do not have access to the papers but some subscription site do, also at that time the British Newspaper Archive is reputed to be best but there is also an Irish Newspaper Archive, both subscription. I am aware some libraries publish synopis of reports from the local papers and you can ask (nominal fee) to have them mailed to you (email) the Tipperary Library is here http://tipperarystudies.ie/genealogy/
There are also a number of active Facebook pages on Tipperary Genealogy, private so apply to join, not sure if they will have any info on what you are looking for.
There is a book called My Clonmel Scrapbook published in the early 1900s and I think it is available on Google Books. Long shot it may contain something on your story.
