Tarmonbarry, officially Termonbarry, 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.  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 Berach in the 6th century—the name of the village in Irish means roughly "Berach's sanctuary".
