Tubbercurry or Tobercurry (Irish: Tobar an Choire, meaning "well of the corrie") is the second-largest town in terms of both population and land area in County Sligo, Ireland. It lies at the foot of the Ox Mountains, on the N17 national primary road. Tubbercurry has a very active Tidy Towns Project which is setting out to transform the town's visual appearance. It was one of the first towns in Ireland to be awarded Fair Trade status and is now home to a large Polish community who work in many of the local industries and retail stores. The village is currently twinned with Viarmes in France. 
The earliest mention of Tubbercurry is from 1397 when a battle took place in the town between two O'Connor families, the O'Connor Don from Roscommon and the O'Connors from Sligo town. St. Naithí and St Attracta are the patron saints of the area.
Tubbercurry boasts three of the most popular and successful festivals in the West of Ireland - the South Sligo Summer School of Irish traditional music, song and dance, held each year during the second week in July, the Old Fair Day Festival held annually in early August and the Western Drama Festival, held each year in early March. These events attract large numbers of performing artists and cultural tourists from all over the world.
The local sports scene comprises Gaelic football and Hurling teams (Tubbercurry GAA), Real Tubber F.C. an association football club, and South Sligo A.C. in athletics. There is a golf course on the town's edge - Tubbercurry Golf Club. Other sports are catered for including Badmintion, Handball and Karate.
Tubbercurry is home to Saint Attracta's Community School, which was opened after the merger of Banada Abbey Secondary School and the Marist Convent. St. Attracta's C.S. was opened in November 2002. It is also home to The Holy Family N.S. primary school.
