Ballymahon (Irish: Baile Uí Mhatháin, meaning “Mahon’s town”) on the River Inny is a town in the southern part of County Longford, Ireland. It is located at the junction of the N55 National secondary road and the R392 regional road.

Ballymahon derives its name from Gaelic Baile Mathuna (Town of Mahon). This may refer to Mahon (Mathgamain mac Cennétig), a southern chieftain and the elder brother of Brian Boru, who is believed by some to have fought a battle in 960 in the vicinity of Ballymahon at Shrule (in Irish Sruaith Fhuil, River of Blood) where he defeated O’Rourke of Cavan and laid claim to lands in the area. This is disputed by others who claim Mahon may relate to a sub chieftain of the O’Farrells who ruled over this part of County Longford in the 14th century.
