Tarmonbarry, officially Termonbarry (Irish: Tearmann Bearaigh, meaning "St Barry's sanctuary"),[1] is a village in County Roscommon, Ireland. It is located where the N5 National primary route crosses the River Shannon. East of the bridge part of the village lies in County Longford. The 2002 Census stated that the village had less than 100 people. The 2006 Census saw that number rise to 518. This is in no small part to the Rural Renewal Tax Scheme which affects the area. The village is less than ten minutes drive from the county town of Longford which is situated a few kilometres east of the village.

Shrine in Termonbarry on the N5

The village originates from an abbey founded by saint Berach in the 6th century[2]—the name of the village in Irish means roughly "Berach's sanctuary". It has four pubs Crosby's,Keenan's, The Shannon Bar and The Lodge. It has two shops including a petrol station with ATM, a marina, restaurants, a Garda Station, a GAA pitch, an art gallery and a solicitor's practice. Keenan's also has a restaurant attached. Next door to Keenan's is another pub/restaurant called The Purple Onion.

GAA[edit]

St Barrys is the name of the local football club in Tarmonbarry. The club encompasses members from Tarmonbarry, Whitehall and the Scramogue region. The club's colours are Green and White[3]

[edit]

Foot.ie[edit]

The town has also been adopted by Foot.ie as its spiritual homeplace after an Irish football thread inexplicably became a shrine to the village[4]

Miscellaneous[edit]

Saint Berach is the patron saint of Termonberry.[5]
