Convoy

Convoy is a village in Co Donegal. It is located to the east of the county in the Finn Valley region. It is situated on the river Deele, and on the road from Stranorlar to Raphoe. At its north-western extremity is the mountain of Cark, 1198 feet above the level of the sea. Like many other towns in the vicinity, it has its origins in the Ulster Plantation. Convoy is home to a mixed religious community which is reflected in the schools and churches in the town. There is a Roman Catholic and a mixed primary school as well as a Roman Catholic church, a Church of Ireland and a Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster. There are no secondary schools in Convoy and local children tend to travel to Raphoe or Stranorlar for second level education. There are a number of shops, pubs and a post office in the village with daily buses to Derry, Letterkenny and Strabane several times a day. The Donegal GAA centre of excellence is based here while there is also St Mary's GAA Club and a soccer club called Convoy Arsenal.
