The Tithe was the tax payable by occupiers of one acre and above to support the Church of Ireland, the official state church until 1871. The record takes account of the name of the head of each household, the amount of land they occupied and the cost of their tithe. This tax was only levied on agricultural land, so urban areas are therefore not included.

Tipperary Studies holds microfilm copies of all surviving Tipperary tithes during this period (c. 200 parishes) and they can be searched digitally at www.titheapplotmentbooks.nationalarchives.ie/search/tab/home.jsp
