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 and pharmacies.
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.
