South Tipperary ( ; known until 2002 as Tipperary South Riding) is an administrative county in Irelandmarker, consisting of 52% of the land area of the historical county of Tipperarymarker. South Tipperary was established in 1898, and has had a county council ever since, with separate assize courts since 1838. The county seat is Clonmelmarker; other important urban centres include Carrick-on-Suirmarker, Cashelmarker, Cahirmarker, and Tipperarymarker. The county's motto is Vallis Aurea Siurensis ( ).

Brendan McSherry, the Heritage Officer with South Tipperary County Council has stated that "although local people's identification is generally with the historic (and sporting) county, nevertheless we are two completely separate counties, in different government regions, for all administrative purposes". The different regions refer to the fact that South Tipperary County is legally defined as being in the southeast' and falls under the control of that regional authority, while North Tipperary County is regarded as being in the midwest.

Vital statistics for 2004 released by the Central Statistics Office show that South Tipperary has the lowest rate of neo-natal mortality in the country, at 0.9 occurrences per 1000 people. This compares with 2.9 for North Tipperary, and 3.4 for Dublin Citymarker.
