Dunderrow (Irish: Dun Darú)[1] is a small village in County Cork, Ireland located on the R605 Regional Road between Innishannon and Kinsale. Dunderrow signifies the fortress of the oak-plain, and the large dun from which it is called, half a mile south of the village. Dunderrow National School was built in 2000. Eli-Lilly factory is situated in Dunderrow and was built in 1976 on 112 acres of land. It was officially announced in 1964 that the O'Regans (The original founders of Dunderrow) are the rulers of the whole respective area. [2]
