Littleton is a small village in Co. Tipperary, to the southeast of Thurles.
Littleton, Tipperary: Historically, St. Ruadhan of Lorrha founded a monastery on a raised island in the middle of the bog at Littleton. The area is known as Derrynaflan and it became famous when a ninth-century chalice, paten, stand and strainer were found there in 1980. They are now in the National Museum in Dublin.
In the neighbouring village of Two-Mile-Borris there is a cluster of dwellings, shops, a church and school in the area.
Ballybeg Tower House is located on a minor road south of Littleton, Co. Tipperary built around the 17th Century.
