its population is estimated at around 900.


Parishes adjoining Clondrohid:[2]

The townlands of Clondrohid were part of the barony of West Muskerry.


Local amenities include Clondrohid National School and community hall and a number of shops, pubs and services. A childcare facility is next to the GAA pitch which is also a preschool and an afterschool, which takes care of babies and children up to 12 years old.

The area also has a castle in one of the townlands, Carraigaphooca. It is in a derelict state at present, but it is the hope of some locals that it should be reformed to its previous glory.

Much of the western side of the village is a part of the Irish-speaking area, Gaeltacht. Many of the pupils of the national school go to the second level school in Ballyvourney to further their education through the medium of Irish. The others go to the De La Salle, St. Marys and McEgan College in Macroom. Cluain Droichead is the birthplace of the famous Irish scholar Peadar Ó Laoghaire (1839-1920).
