Banteer (Irish: Bántír) is a village in north County Cork, Ireland located in the Civic Parish of Clonmeen in the Barony of Duhallow. It is near the town of Mallow.

History[edit]

In 1651, the Battle of Knocknaclashy, the last pitched battle of the Irish Confederate Wars, took place near the village, when English Parliamentarians under Roger Boyle, 1st Earl of Orrery defeated an Irish force under Donagh MacCarthy, Viscount Muskerry.

Organizations[edit]

Local sporting organizations include a Gaelic football club known simply as "Lyre" after a nearby village and a hurling club known as Banteer.

The Glen Theatre is a community owned and managed centre for the arts. The theatre was originally Banteer National School (built 1840).[2]
