Tarmonbarry, officially Termonbarry (Irish: Tearmann Bearaigh, meaning "St Barry's sanctuary"),[1] is a village in County Roscommon, Ireland. It is located where the N5 National primary route crosses the River Shannon. East of the bridge part of the village lies in County Longford. The 2002 Census stated that the village had less than 100 people. The 2006 Census saw that number rise to 518. This is in no small part to the Rural Renewal Tax Scheme which affects the area. The village is less than ten minutes drive from the county town of Longford which is situated a few kilometres east of the village.


The village originates from an abbey founded by saint Keenan's, The Shannon Bar and The Lodge. It has two shops including a petrol station with ATM, a marina, restaurants, a Garda Station, a GAA pitch, an art gallery, a 60,000 all seater state of the art soccer stadium, a brothel, and a solicitor's practice. Keenan's also has a restaurant attached. Next door to Keenan's is another pub/restaurant called The Purple Onion.
