Tullygarvey (Irish: Teallach Ghairbhíth) is one of eight Baronies in the County of Cavan. The area has been in constant occupation since pre-4000 BC. The Barony of Tullygarvey consists of the parishes of Kill and Drung and parts of Annagh, Drumgoon and Laragh.


In 1579, East Breifne, then part of Connacht, was made a shire. The shire was named Cavan after the area's main town. The administration remained in the control of the local Irish dynasty and subject to the Brehon and Canon Law.

In 1584, John Perrot formed the shire into a county in Ulster. It was subdidided into eight baronies.
