Four miles west of Longford Town, at the confluence of the river Camlin and the Shannon,we find a charming, sleepy little village - much loved by tourists and locals alike. This village, Clondra, is built around the place where the Royal Canal ends its journey from Dublin to the Shannon.
Richmond Harbour is the main focus of visitors to the village. There are several pubs there and plenty of activity from visiting yachts. During the summer it is the venue for a very popular Country Festival. People come from far afield to enjoy the music.
There are many fine spots for fishing, both on the Shannon, the Camlin, as well as the Canal and the harbour. The many picturesque places in and around the village make it an ideal place for photographers and painters alike.
The local development group have put a great effort in renovating the old schoolhouse , and it is now a very comfortable community centre,which is fully wheelchair accessible.
