River Nore in Kilkenny
Origin Devil's Bit Mountain, County Tipperary
Mouth Celtic Sea at Waterford

The River Nore (Irish: An Fheoir or Abhainn na Feoire) is one of the Three Sisters rivers which flow into the sea at Waterford Harbour in the Republic of Ireland. It is 87 miles (140 km) long, and is a noted river for salmon and trout fishing. The Nore rises on the eastern slopes of the Devil's Bit Mountain in County Tipperary, flowing south-eastwards into County Laois and County Kilkenny before joining the River Barrow just north of New Ross. The river passes near Durrow, County Laois then through Ballyragget, Kilkenny city and then the villages of Bennettsbridge and Thomastown. It flows through the Mount Juliet estate. Further south, it forms a picturesque V-shaped river valley, particularly notable near the village of Inistiogue, the tidal limit. Major tributaries of the Nore include the Dinin, the Breagagh at Kilkenny City, the King's River, the Little Arrigle and the Black Water.
