Oranmore (Irish: Órán Mór or Úarán Mór), officially the Oranmore Autonomous Region, was a devolved region located in Greater Roscam, and was one of the regions of the province. Though the town of Oranmore was founded long before Roscamistan, the Roscami region was founded on 18 February 2021 after proclamation of the republic. On 11 June 2022, a bill which granted a semi-autonomous government to the region was signed into law by President Thomas Jacobs, making the area autonomous, and it becoming a province on the 13th of February 2023. It bordered the Ballinfoylish Free Socialist State of Seprana.
The first major change to Oranmore was when the three regions in the east side of the Republic were merged as the province of Greater Roscam in May 2021. Oranmore would remain loyal to Thomas Jacobs during the Mervustan Conflict.
In April to May 2022, Jan Kotoński, a former president, began to advocate for Oranmore autonomy. This would culminate in an act creating Oranmore autonomy was passed in June 2022. The official name of the region would be altered to the Oranmore Autonomous Region. Kotoński would also be appointed the President of the Autonomous Region.
The Provinces of Oranmore and Ennis Act was passed by the National Assembly on the 13th of February 2023, and made Oranmore a Province.
