Donore, Co. Meath

Donore , historically Dunower, is a small village near Drogheda in County Meath, Ireland. It lies on the Meath–Louth border in the Boyne Valley on the road between Drogheda and the Brú na Bóinne heritage site. Donore is only 2 km from the visitors' centre at Brú na Bóinne. During the late 17th century, the village was used as a defensive position by the Jacobite army of King James II against King William III during the Battle of the Boyne . The village has undergone much growth in recent years as a result of its location near the recent extension of the M1 motorway.

The village has a pub and restaurant, shops, a pharmacy, a take-away and a hairdresser.

The local gaelic football team is called St Mary's.
