Cloonfad  ~  Dunmore
 
 
Cloonfad is a village built around a crossroads on the Galway, Mayo, Roscommon border. The name Cloonfad comes from the Irish "Cluain fada," meaning a long meadow or bog clearing. 
 
Cloonfad is today served by a church, post office and school. The modern day village is expanding quickly, with many new housing developments going up since 2000.

The village is reputed to have been built other than in the area it was intended. The more likely place is thought to have been in the nearby townland of Lavallyroe, a one-time bishop's original location for the local national school, according to a local historian.

Many new residents are attracted by the convenience of Cloonfad to the thriving town of Ballyhaunis, ten kilometers away in County Mayo, as well as to the city of Galway, a 40 minute drive to the West. Cloonfad is one of three villages (the others are Granlahan and Ballinlough) forming the parish of Kiltullagh.
