Clondalkin is an interesting village and parish in the Barony of Upper Cross, about 4 1/2 miles from Dublin, having a station on the Great Southern and Western Railway. Near the centre of the village is a round tower in an excellent state of preservation. The chief industry is the manufacture of paper by Messrs. Kynoch. The Catholic Church is a neat and imposing structure. The Nuns of the Presentation Order have charge of the Girls' National Schools. There is also a Carmelite Monastery, attached to which is a high-class Boarding School, and a Boys' National School conducted by the Christian Brothers, founded in 1813. There are several almshouses for destitute widows, a lying-in hospital, a dorcas institution, dispensary and police barrack. Population, about 450.
