Clondulane (Irish: Cluain Dalláin)[2] is a village in north County Cork, Ireland, 3.5m east of Fermoy, just off the Main Fermoy-Dungarvan Road. Originally built as a camp for the workers of a Cork Milling Company grain mill, it now has a population of over 200. However, with 60 new houses being built in the immediate area, this is soon to rise dramatically. . Unusually, there are three large houses of note in the village: Clondulane, Glandulane, and Careysville Houses, the latter being owned by the Duke of Devonshire(England)and used as a lodging house during the salmon season. Along with 4 housing estates and many stand alone dwellings, there is a school, community centre, public house, playing fields, park, disused railway station, factory, a Protestant school, Protestant church and graveyard.

Rail

Clondulane railway station opened on 27 September 1872, but closed on 27 March 1967.[3] It was located on the now dismantled Waterford to Mallow line and served by the Rosslare to Cork boat train.[4]
