The River Funshion ( Irish: Abhainn na Fuinseann) is a river in Munster, Ireland, a tributary of the Munster Blackwater.


The River Funshion rises in the Galtee Mountains at Kilbeheny, near the County LimerickCounty Tipperary border. It flows southwards past Galtee Castle and under the M8, crossing the R639. It then flows westwards and forms part of the County LimerickCounty Cork border, passing under the M8 again, and the R639 at Kilbeheny. It flows westwards through Mitchelstown Golf Club, north of the town. The Funshion passes under the N73 near Kildorrery, flowing southeast through Glanworth and again under the M8 and R639, draining into the Munster Blackwater about 3.5 km (2 mi) downriver of Fermoy.
