Clondalkin is situated on the banks of the River Camac. The place name comes from the Irish Cluain Do/cain meaning 'Dolcan's Meadow' or 'Meadow of Thorns'. As you will learn on your walk, Clondalkin has a rich history dating back to the sixth century. It was plundered by the Danes in 832 A.D. and was the site of a battle in 1014 between the Vikings and Brian Boru, the last High King of Ireland. Today it is a busy suburb of Dublin with lots to offer the culturally curious visitor.
