Clonmel (Cluain Meala in Irish) is the largest inland town in the south of Republic of Ireland. It is the county seat of South Tipperary County Council, although part of the town is situated across the river Suir in the county of Waterford. It lies in a valley, surrounded by mountains and hills. The Comeragh Mountains are to the south, while east of the town is Slievenamon. The River Suir flows through the town. The town has an honoured place in Irish history as having braved and withstood the Cromwellian forces which sacked both Drogheda and Wexford.

Clonmel was built up significantly in medieval times, and many remainders of this past can be found in the town itself. A small section of the town walls, which once encircled Clonmel, remains in place. One of the former entry points into the town is now the site of the 'West Gate', a 19th century reconstruction of an older structure (there were originally three gates in the walled town: North, East and West - with the South being protected by the Suir and the Comeragh mountains). This gate is, today, an open arched entrance on to O'Connell street, the main street of the town. Oliver Cromwell, who is infamous in Ireland but respected in Britain, laid siege to Clonmel in May 1650 during his campaign in Ireland. The walls were eventually breached, but Hugh Dubh O'Neill, the commander of the town's garrison, inflicted heavy losses on Cromwell's troops when they tried to storm the breach. However, the garrison in Clonmel surrendered the following day, as O'Neill's men were out of gun powder. The story is told that Cromwell discovered this when a silver bullet was discharged from the townspeople at his troops outside the walls. As a mark of respect to the townspeople and in recognition of their fortitude in defending their town, Cromwell donated his sword to the people which can be seen in Clonmel Town Hall to this day.

The town has always been an important centre of trade and commerce. The river had been made navigable to Clonmel from 1760 when completion of the River Suir Navigation in the 19th century allowed large vessels to reach the town's quays. Charles Bianconi, onetime mayor of Clonmel, ran his pioneering public transport system of horse-drawn carriages from Clonmel. The Waterford and Limerick Railway opened a station in the town in 1848. Today, there are three trains daily to Waterford and three to Limerick Junction which has main-line connections to Dublin. In recent times Clonmel has become the home to many large multi-national companies, particularly in the medical area. The two biggest medical companies in the town are Abbott and Boston Scientific, which both manufacture implantable devices. Bulmers cider, also known as Magners outside of Ireland, is brewed in a complex three kilometers east of the town, and the extensive orchards serving the brewery can be seen when entering the town from the east. 1760 was a leap year starting on Tuesday (see link for calendar). ...
