Video of Terenure District, Dublin City, County Dublin, Republic of Ireland

Terenure (Irish: Tír an Iúir, meaning "land of the yew tree") is a mainly residential suburb of Dublin, Ireland, largely in the administrative area of Dublin City Council but with parts in the administrative county of South Dublin (within the Terenure-Rathfarnham electoral area).

Terenure is located south of Harold's Cross and north of Rathfarnham, and partially contained in the Dublin 6, Dublin 6W and Dublin 12 postal districts.

Terenure, Drimnagh and Kimmage, on the south side of Dublin City, were given to the Barnewell family by King John in 1215. The Barnewells gave some of the land to St John The Baptist Hospital outside Newgate, and Cromwell confiscated the remainder from them. Terenure passed through the hands of various owners since then, including what is now Terenure College (bought by the Carmelites in 1860).

The earliest reference to these areas can be found in Grant CCA-DCc-ChAnt/C/1206, a document in Canterbury Cathedral Archives, by which King Henry II granted the lands Terenure and Kimmage (Cheming)in Rathfarnham to Walter the goldsmith ('aurifauber') in 1175. It is not yet been established how the lands reverted to the crown within 40 years.

The author James Joyce, who was born nearby at 41 Brighton Square in Rathgar on 2 February 1882, was baptised at St. Joseph's church on 5 February by Rev. John O'Mulloy. His mother, Mary Jane (May) Murray, was born 90 metres from the church at Terenure Cross in 1859 in the pub owned by her father, John Murray, called The Eagle House.

The village was home to actors, writers and musicians including Donal McCann and Máirtín Ó Direáin. Broadcaster Mike Murphy, Derek Daly former Formula One driver, comedian Dave Allen, Olympic boxer Mick Dowling, musicians Republic Of Loose, Rob Smith, The Coronas and Grammy-winner Susan McKeown all hail from Terenure

Terenure is the home of Terenure College RFC, a senior rugby club in Division 2 of the AIB All Ireland League.

Terenure Football Club provide schoolboy and adult soccer to the surrounding area.

CYM Sports club is also in Terenure.

Terenure is the home of the The Star newspaper.

An Aircoach service links the area with Dublin Airport via the M50 24 hours a day.
