Sentence deleted[edit]

Why was the following taken out? Does no-one else find it an interesting piece of trivia?

"The estimated population of the town at the 2002 census was 1,947. Unusually for a town in the Republic Protestants outnumber Roman Catholics in Clones (albeit by a small margin) Its the largest town in the Republic of Ireland which still has a Protestant majority".

Interesting enough. If you can verify it, then feel free to add it to the article again Downunda 22:55, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

Town location on the County map[edit]

The pin point of Clones town on the County Monaghan map is in an incorrect location, if anyone knows how to fix this then please do. Curran1980 16:10, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

Is the town Clones part of the Parish of Clones?[edit]

I had previously written an article on the Parish of Clones (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clones,_County_Fermanagh) and I'm not sure if Clones is part of the Parish. If so i will have to add it to the page which already exists (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clones) Could anyone help me? --DeclanDeclan (talk) 01:11, 20 October 2015 (UTC)

Requested move 16 December 2016[edit]

The following is a closed discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: pages moved. I have redirected Clones and Clones (disambiguation) to Clone as all entries on Clones (disambiguation) were already in Clone. (non-admin closure)MRD2014 (talkcontribs) 19:05, 23 December 2016 (UTC)


WP:SURPRISE! The WP:PRIMARYTOPIC of "Clones" is probably just the plural of Clone, especially since plurality is sort of built-in with that concept. But with no primary topic for "Clone" either, I recommend this also be disambiguated at the base title. --BDD (talk) 17:10, 16 December 2016 (UTC)


The above discussion is preserved as an archive of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page or in a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

Post-move cleanup[edit]

I have done post-move cleanup involving bypassing the disambiguation pages after the page move. However, I have to go to work, so I will not be able to continue cleanup until I come home. If anyone wants to help with link fixing (e.g. changing [[Clones]] to [[Clones, County Monaghan|Clones]]), that would be greatly appreciated. —MRD2014 (talkcontribs) 20:29, 23 December 2016 (UTC)

I think a lot of it has been taken care of. —MRD2014 (talkcontribs) 04:05, 24 December 2016 (UTC)
