Carndonagh, from the Irish meaning “the cairn or mound of the church”, is a town on the Inishowen peninsula in County Donegal, close to Trawbreaga Bay.

The town lies in the shadow of Slieve Snaght and was founded as a monastic settlement in the 5th Century by St. Patrick or his followers.

It is the site of the Donagh Cross (or St. Patrick’s Cross), believed to date to the 7th century.
