Also known as Borris or TMB, Twomileborris is a small village in Co. Tipperary, Ireland. Made famous first by Douglas Adams in his book "The Meaning of Liff" (1983) and then in the 90s by Dustin the Turkey in his song "I've never been to Meath". Soon became the Monaco of Ireland, with celebrities such as Anne Doyle and Dr Quirky buying up local properties. Comedian Pat Shortt and Olympian Tomás Coman originate from the area. The village has gained recent press for being the proposed site of a megacasino. It is also known for it's 13th century castle, it's motorway junction, it's oddly mooing cows and for it's notoriously contrary residents and expats (known as Borrisheads, typical names include Legs, Nogg, Shiner, Maaah, etc). Not to be confused with the manky village of Borrisoleigh.
