Ballingarry is a small parish, located in South-East Tipperary, in the area known as the Slieveardagh Hills. Ballingarry is steeped in History, Heritage and Tradition.

From the principal location of the Young Irelanders 1848 Rebellion, to the links with the first public flying of the Irish Tricolour Flag, to our musical and mining heritage, the parish has a richly distinctive past, dating back to the early Christian Period.

Since 1998, with the purchase of the Widow McCormack’s house, the principal place of action during the 1848 Rebellion, Ballingarry has firmly taken its place on the national heritage map. A world class national heritage site, now greets visitors coming to Ballingarry, from near and far.

Throughout 2013, Ireland opened its arms to hundreds of thousands of friends and family from all over the world, calling them home to gatherings in villages, towns and cities.

“There were clan gatherings, festivals, special sporting events, music and concerts taking place all across the country, all year long.”

Communities throughout Ireland are showcasing and sharing the very best of Irish culture, tradition, business, sport, fighting spirit and the uniquely Irish sense of fun.

Over 70 million people worldwide claim Irish ancestry. The Gathering Ireland 2013 provides the perfect excuse to reach out to those who have moved away, their relatives, friends and descendants, and invite them home.

Ballingarry held it’s own Gathering events, the Presentation Secondary School held a reunion, the Farranrory N.S. Reunion committee held an event to commemorate the closing of the school in 1973 & the Ballingarry Parish Gathering event was held in July.  All these events were a massive success & we congratulate all those who were involved.

We hope to see many visitors to Ballingarry in 2014.
