County Tipperary (Irish: Contae Thiobraid Árann) is a county in Ireland situated in the province of Munster. Tipperary was one of the first Irish counties to be established in the 13th century.
Tipperary is famous for its horse breeding industry and is the home of Coolmore Stud, which is the largest thoroughbred breeding operation in the world. The County forms a large part of the Golden Vale (or Vein) of Munster, boasting a rich and fertile agricultural landscape. The County particularly nurtures the ancient game of hurling and its teams have regularly been champions of Ireland since the 19th century.

NR Redwood Bog
Redwood is the most northerly townland in Tipperary and in Munster. The bog was acquired from Bord na Móna for conservation purposes. It is a raised bog that has developed on the southern margin of the Little Brosna flood plain at its confluence with the Shannon. It forms part of the Little Brosna Callows Area of Scientific Interest, which is of international importance as a wildfowl habitat and as a classical example of a flood plain ecosystem. The reserve includes the last relatively intact bog dome on the flood plain margin as well as a dried out portion of another dome and an area of fen. The intact dome has a typical raised bog flora and in the centre it retains quaking areas and numerous bog pools.
