Tyrrellspass in County Westmeath is on the old Dublin-Galway route through the Midland about 50 miles from Dublin, off the modern M6 motorway.
The most distinctive feature of the village is the Crescent of houses and village green, dating from at least the last quarter of the 18th century. (See National Inventory of Architectural Heritage)
Although its community numbers just under 500 people, it has a vibrant community life with a diverse range of
activities taking place throughout the year. Apart from the Tyrrellspass Development Association aka Tidy Towns, there is the GAA, a drama group, art group, active retirement group and gardening club.
