Tinure (Irish: Tigh an Iúir, meaning "house of the yew") is a small village and townland in the parish of Monasterboice, County Louth, Ireland.[1] The official spelling of the village's name is Tinure (which is derived from Tigh an Iúir) however it is sometimes mistakenly referred to locally as "Tenure".

Tinure is predominantly rural in character, although there has been some new housing constructed in recent years. It falls within the scope of Drogheda Town, to its south, and Dunleer Town, to its north, which provide employment for many of the village's residents. There is a small business park located on the northern edge of the village, with a number of services firms on site. The growth of the village in recent years can be largely attributed to its proximity to the M1 motorway, which has improved transport linkages to the locality.

Tinure is noted for its Roman Catholic Church, The Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, which was constructed in 1894. It is located on the main junction of the five roads that intersect the village.[2]
