Clonee ( ) is a rapidly developing satellite village and surrounding district on the borders of County Meathmarker, near Dunboynemarker, and Fingal County, Irelandmarker. The county boundary actually runs through the district, just outside the village, which is in Meath, and many of the housing estates listed as Clonee, such as Littlepace and Hansfield, lie on the Dublin side of that boundary.

Location and access

Clonee is about 14 km from Dublinmarker, and is accessible by the Dublin Bus routes 70/A/X (City Centre/Belfieldmarker - Dunboyne), 39 (Hawkins St to Ongarmarker) and 270 (Blanchardstownmarker Shopping Centre-Dunboyne). It is situated just off the main N3 Dublinmarker to Cavanmarker road and is 4 miles north-west of the M50 motorway. Dunboynemarker is just a couple of km away down the R156 road.

Facilities

Clonee has a primary school and a few shopping areas, in addition to facilities within the new housing developments being built around the village.

More facilities are also being built as part of the Árd Cluain development just outside the village, and a supermarket recently opened (in June 2008).

Points of note

The Kepak Group, a large food processing company with a turnover in excess of €500 million and employing more than 2000 people in Ireland and the UK, moved its headquarters to Clonee in 1981.

On January 1 2005, the Littlepace housing estate in Clonee was struck by a small tornado, which caused damage to a number of houses and parked vehicles.http://www.breakingnews.ie/2005/01/01/story182855.html Breakingnews.ie, 'Mini tornado' damages 100 houses, retrieved 27 May 2009
