Aherla (Irish: An Eatharla) is a small village in County Cork, Ireland with a population of approximately 450. It is in the townlands of Aherla More and Rathard. Aherla is built on a limestone shelf typical of County Cork's ridges and valleys.
The area features a number of historical sites and is part of the parish of Kilmurry in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Cork and Ross. Though the population of the village is overwhelmingly catholic, it (somewhat unusually) has a Church of Ireland church, but no Catholic church. One of the area's notable residents was Daphne Pochin Mould, author and scientist.
The village of An Eatharlach (The Glen) is situated in Muskerry East, in south County Cork. It lies between Cork City and Macroom - each being approximately 20km away. Cloughduv and Crookstown are 4km and 6.5km respectively to the west, Farran 3.5km to the north and Killumney 5km at the Cork and Ballincollig side. The village of Aherla sits between the hills that frame the Bride River valley.
