Clondulane (Irish: Cluain Dalláin)[1] is a village in north County Cork, Ireland, 3.5m east of Fermoy, just off the Main Fermoy-Dungarvan Road. Originally built as a camp for the workers of a Cork Milling Company grain mill, it now has a population of over 200. However, with 60 new houses being built in the immediate area, this is soon to rise dramatically.

Unusually, there are three large houses of note in the village: Clondulane, Glandulane, and Careysville Houses, the latter being owned by the Duke of Devonshire and used as a lodging house during the salmon season. Along with 4 housing estates and many stand alone dwellings, there is a school, community centre, public house, playing fields, park, disused railway station, factory and the remains of a Protestant church and graveyard.

Transport[edit]

Clondulane railway station opened on 27 September 1872, but finally closed on 27 March 1967.[2]
