Carndonagh is a town on the Inishowen Peninsula in Co Donegal. The town lies close to the shores of Trawbeaga Bay. Carndonagh is the site of the Donagh Cross, which belonged to an early Christian monastery founded by St. Patrick for Bishop MacCairthan, brother of the bishop of Clogher. The town is laid out around a central square, or Diamond, and is dominated by its Italianate Catholic church. It is also home to Carndonagh Community School, formerly the largest community school in Ireland. It is a small but pretty town consisting of cafés, pubs, a variety of shops and a nightclub. Carndonagh has a community of active musicians, artists and writers and is home to the Inishowen Carnival Group and the Inishowen Gospel choir (both international performers). The town is served by Foyle Coaches which provides four buses Monday to Friday travelling from Carndonagh to Derry City and vice versa, with three buses on the route on Saturdays. There are numerous sports clubs in the area including GAA, soccer, rugby, athletic, boxing and dodgeball clubs.
