Tramore ( / t r ə ˈ m oʊ r / ; Irish : Trá Mhór , meaning "big strand/beach") is a seaside town in County Waterford on the southeast coast of Ireland. A small fishing village until the arrival of the railway in 1853, the town has continually expanded since. Initially the town flourished as a tourist destination and latterly it has developed as a seaside satellite town of Waterford City , which is 13 km to the north. Waterford Airport is located about 6 km northeast.
On the night of 6 June 1921, during the Irish War of Independence , fifty local IRA Volunteers attempted to ambush a party of forty British troops from Waterford City, who were coming to Tramore following an attack on the RIC barracks there. The ambush took place at Pickardstown, about a mile to the north of Tramore. The ambush failed to go according to plan as they could not see in the dark field.This caused the death of two IRA men and two wounded. The Tramore GAA field is named after one of the dead Volunteers. 
The town is situated on the north-western corner of Tramore Bay on a hill that slopes down to the strand, or sand spit , that divides the bay. Behind the spit lies the tidal lagoon known as the Back Strand. Tramore has an imposing Gothic Revival Catholic Church (which is dominated by an asymmetrical tower and spire), on a monumental site overlooking the town, built 1856–1871 by J. J. McCarthy.
