South Tipperary County Council (Irish: Comhairle Contae Thiobraid Árann Theas) was the authority responsible for local government in the county of South Tipperary, Ireland. The council had 26 elected members. The head of the council had the title of Cathaoirleach (Chairperson). The county town was Clonmel.

On 26 July 2011, the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government, Phil Hogan, announced the proposed merger of North Tipperary County Council and South Tipperary County Council.[1] It was abolished on 3 June 2014 when the Local Government Reform Act 2014 was implemented.[2] It was succeeded by Tipperary County Council.

For the purpose of elections the county was divided into five local electoral areas: Cahir (4), Cashel (4), Clonmel (7), Fethard (6), and Tipperary (5).[3]
