County Tipperary is in the southern province of Munster.
For all administration purposes the county is divided into North Tipperary (county seat is Nenagh) and South Tipperary (county seat is Clonmel).
The region is part of the central plain of Ireland, but the terrain has several mountain ranges, Knockmealdown, Galtee, Arra, and Silvermines.
The county is drained by the Suir River and the Shannon , which widens into Lough Derg on the northern border.
The center of County Tipperary is known as ‘the Golden Vale’, a rich pastoral stretch of land in the basin of the River Suir, which crosses the county from north to south.
