Carndonagh (Irish: Carn Domhnach) is a town on the Inishowen peninsula in County Donegal, Ireland, close to Trawbreaga Bay. It is the site of the Donagh Cross (or St. Patrick's Cross), believed to date to the 7th century. The original Irish name, Carn Domhnach, means the burial mound of the church.
The town is laid out around a central square, or Diamond, and is dominated by its Romanesque Revival Catholic church. It is home to national schools such as both St. Patrick's GNS and BNS and Carndonagh Community School, formerly the largest community school in Ireland.
