Clondalkin has a
very long history that can be traced right back to a Neolithic settlement
that predates the Egyptian pyramids. However in the current day
Clondalkin is a suburb of Dublin 22. Nearby
suburbs include Lucan, Palmerstown,
Ronanstown, Neilstown, and Ballyfermot.
The town is located
to the west of, and approximately 10Km from, Dublin City Centre.
Clondalkin is renowned for it's 8th century round tower situated
in the centre of the village. It has a population of almost 45,000.
The suburb is served by retail outlets that include Dunnes,, Tesco,
Lidl and Aldi and is also the location for small businesses such
as estate agents, solicitors, restaurants, public houses, hairdressers
Amongst other things
Clondalkin is famous for its monastic round tower which is 27.5
metres high and dates from around 600AD. The local monastery came
under attack several times down through the ages including attacks
from Norsemen and from monks from neighbouring Tallaght! Perhaps
this explains some of the extra sense of rivalry when Clondalkin
soccer teams and teams from Tallaght
clash on the football pitch.
