Lorrha is a small village situated at the north tip of Co. Tipperary, Ireland. The village is located about three miles east of the point where the River Shannon enters Lough Derg. The parish itself borders Portumna in Co. Galway, Birr in Co. Offaly and has internal borders with the parishes of Terryglass, Riverstown and Borrisokane in Tipperary. This historic crossing point over the River Shannon between counties Tipperary and Galway has a long history of bridges and ferry crossings.
