Templemore, Co. Tipperary

 Templemore (An Teampall Mór, meaning The Big Church, in Irish) is a town lying beneath the westeren slopes of Devil's Bit Mountain in County Tipperary. Since February 1964, the town has been the site of the Garda Síochána College, the centre for training Ireland's police force.

The town is of Georgian style architecture with three storey houses on the main street built by Sir John Carden II, a 19th century landlord. The market square with its Town Hall in the centre of the town is reputed locally to be the widest in either Ireland or Britain, and backs on to a 70 acre wooded Town Park that was formerly part of the Carden estate.  The park holds the remains of Templemore Abbey and Black Castle. Also in the park are a large lake and swimming pool.

There is good fishing for brown trout on the upper reaches of the River Suir near the town, and the lake in the town park holds pike, roach, perch and tench. The North Tipperary Foxhounds hunt the district.
