Crookedwood is a small village in County Westmeath on the R394 regional road.
Overlooked by the dominating hill of Knockeyon to the north, the village rests between the pine-covered hills as they roll down towards Lough Derravaragh, and located about 8 km north of Mullingar, at the south-eastern tip of the Lough.
Similar to Lough Lene, in Collinstown, the nearby Lough Derravaragh fishing interests are also promoted by the Crookedwood community to the European and occasional American tourist.
Historically it was called Taghmon , after the townland it occupies.
