It is one half of the Roman Catholic parish of Powerstown and Lisronagh in the diocese of Waterford and Lismore. It is in the barony of Iffa and Offa East. It is located on the R689 regional road 7km north of Clonmel, and 6km south of Fethard.


Lisronagh has been inhabited since at least the medieval period, and was held by the Anglo-Norman de Burgh family from the time of Henry II. A rare surviving document, the rental of the manor of Lisronagh, dates to 1333 and describes the local lord's landholdings, the rents owed by local tenants, and the rights which the village's inhabitants possessed.[2] The powerful Butler family built a tower house in the village in the 16th century, which survives now in a ruinous condition.[3] By the early 19th century, Lisronagh had a population of 981.[4]

Horse Racing

Lisronagh is also home to the Lisronagh Point to Point race. It takes place annually at Lisronagh on a right handed, mainly flat track, with a slight up hill finish. The Clonmel Agricultural Show owns the track,[5] and it is leased to the Tipperary Foxhounds.
