Birdhill (Cnocán an Éin Fhinn – The Hill of the Fair Bird) is a small picturesque village situated in county Tipperary on the old N7 (now R445) midway between Limerick and Nenagh. Killaloe is 3 miles to the north, while Newport lies 5 miles to the south. Birdhill derives its name from a mythical encounter between Oisín of the Fianna and a giant bird which was causing widespread destruction in the area.
