Glencolmcille, Co. Donegal

Gleann Cholm Cille is a coastal district in the southwest Gaeltacht of County Donegal, Ireland. While Gleann Cholm Cille is still an Irish-speaking community, English has been steadily replacing Irish as the main language, with only 34% of the people speaking Irish on a daily basis in 2002. Cashel is the main village in the district.

The name translates into English as "valley of Colm Cille". Saint Colm Cille, or Columba, is one of Ireland's three patron saints . Colm Cille and his followers lived in the valley for a time and the ruins of several of their churches can still be seen there.
