An election to all 40 seats on Tipperary County Council election was held on 23 May 2014 as part of the 2014 Irish local elections, contested by a field of 85 candidates. This was a reduction from a combined total of 47 seats at the previous election: 21 at the 2009 North Tipperary election and 27 at the 2009 South Tipperary election. The former counties of North Tipperary and South Tipperary were amalgamated under the Local Government Reform Act 2014. The town councils of Carrick-on-Suir, Cashel, Nenagh, Templemore, Tipperary and Thurles and the borough council of Clonmel were also abolished.
