Clonegal

(110+ reviews from 1 attraction)
Historic Sites
Clonegal, officially Clonegall, is a village in the southeast of County Carlow, Ireland. It is in a rural setting, 5 km from Bunclody, County Wexford, 22 km from Carlow and 17 km from the proposed interchange of the N9 and N80 roads at Rathcrogue. It is just over a mile north of where the River Slaney and the River Derry meet. Clonegal has a much smaller "twin" village across the River Derry in County Wexford, Watch House Village.The town is served by a primary school, and is central to a thriving agricultural hinterland, although it has little business development. Further housing development is imminent.NameThe name Clonegal comes from the Irish Cluain na nGall or Meadow of the Foreigner. This could have originated from when Cromwell’s soldiers, during the Irish Confederate Wars, fought the Irish in the village in 1650 after which all Irish surviving males were massacred. Others contend that it came from foreign students who came to study in a monastery near the village.DemographicsAccording to the 2006 Census, Clonegal had a population of approximately 280, an increase of 20% since the 2002 Census.
