Tipperary

Tipperary is a town in County Tipperary.

Understand

In Irish, 'Tiobraid Árann' means 'The Well of the Arra' - a reference to the river which flows through the town. The well itself is located in the townland of Glenbane which is in the parish of Lattin and Cullen. This is where the river "Arra" rises. Little is known of the historical significance of the well.

Tipperary gives its name to the British music hall song "It's a Long Way to Tipperary".
