Annyalla or Annayalla (Irish: Eanaigh Gheala, meaning "bright marshes or pools") is a small village and townland situated in the east of County Monaghan in Ireland between Castleblayney and Clontibret. Annyalla is also the name of an area of County Monaghan and is part of the parish of Clontibret.

The main feature of the village is St Michael's church, built between 1922 and 1927. It was designed by the architect William A Scott and completed under the supervision of R M Butler of University College Dublin. The Monaghan Gaelic Athletic Association Training & Development Centre is located nearby at Cloghan.

Since November 2007 the village has been by-passed by the Castleblayney to Clontibret By-Pass but the church and village are visible from it.
