Landlocked, but drained by the River Suir in the south, and by the tributaries of the River Shannon to the north – as it flows into the long and narrow waters of Lough Derg – North Tipperary is situated in the province of Munster.
Since its creation at the turn of the 19th century, North Tipperary has constituted approximately half of the area of the traditional Irish county of Tipperary. In 1898, the county of North Tipperary was established with its own independent county council.
Things to do in North Tipperary
Meanwhile, in addition to the Silvermine and the Arras Hills, the Devil's Bit Mountain takes its name from the legend that the Devil once took a bite out of the rockface and, breaking his tooth, created the iconic Rock of Cashel, at the spot where the tooth fell to the ground. Cashel was the seat of the Kings of Munster, and is located in neighbouring South Tipperary. The area surrounding the Devil's Bit provides a spectacular landscape for both motorists and walkers alike. On the approach to the summit, the tower, known as Carden's Folly, was built by a prominent local family in the mid 19th century. On the top of the rock itself stands a 45 ft high cross, erected in 1954 to the glory of the Virgin Mary.
Dromineer – The largest inland marina in Ireland, perched on the shores of Lough Derg, Dromineer is also the site of yet another fine ruined castle.
Terryglass – The 'land of two streams' was the site of a 6th century monastery founded by Columba; the monastery was responsible for the creation of the Book of Leinster, a highly significant and revered mediaeval Irish manuscript, which covers a variety of subjects including Irish literature, mythology and genealogy. Terryglass Abbey survived several Viking raids before it was eventually destroyed in 1164.
Borrisokane – On the banks of the Ballyfinboy River, Borrisokane played a crucial role in the Irish War of Independence, including being the site of the Modreeny Ambush in 1921. During the 19th and early 20th century, wheat production and brewing were a central focus of local industry. Today, more rural pursuits are the order of the day; situated as it is in the midst of the Great Plain of Lower Ormond, the landscape is particularly well suited to the activities associated with farm production.
Lough Derg – The third largest lough in Ireland, Lough Derg covers over 45 sq miles and runs south, in a long, narrow strip, between the eastern borders of North Tipperary, and the neighbouring counties of Clare in the south west and Galway to the north east. It is a particularly popular venue for fishing and sailing, and several activity centres on the shores offer visitors activities such as kayaking, canoeing and dinghy sailing.
Thurles – The town of Thurles has an impressive, Italianate Romanesque church, the Cathedral of the Assumption, which apparently took the fine, naved cathedral of Pisa as its initial inspiration. Nearby, at Furney Castle – the only Round Tower in Ireland to be currently utilised as a family home – the 15th century Tower reaches 58ft high, over five storeys; although a private residence, the Castle is open to the public.
Roscrea – Between the Slieve Bloom and Devil's Bit mountains, the historic town of Roscrea is home to the almost obligatory 13th century castle. Meanwhile, the haunting remains of Monaincha Abbey date back over 1,300 years, and are situated on what was once an island in the middle of a bog. The church, on the holy island of Loch Cré, also has distinctly Romanesque features, including a richly decorated west doorway and chancel arch, together with a number of later, fine Gothic additions.
