Moyaliff (historically Moaliffe "Mealiff", from Irish: Maigh Ailbhe)[1] is an old Civil Parish and townland in County Tipperary, Ireland. The old Civil parish was in the barony of Kilnamanagh Upper in the County of Tipperary. It had thirty one townlands in total. Twenty seven of these townslands are in the Roman Catholic Parish of Upperchurch-Drombane, three in the Roman Catholic parish of Holycross-Ballycahill and one townland Moyaliff itself shared between the two.

The name is composed of two Irish words: 'Maigh', meaning "plain" and "Ailbhe" which is the Gaelic word of Alvy giving the full name of Maigh Ailbhe which directly translates to Alvy's Plain.[2]
