Cratloe (Irish: An Chreatlach, meaning “The Land of Sallow trees”) is a village in County Clare, Ireland, situated between Limerick and Shannon in the midwest of Ireland. It is possible that the name derives from Croit-shliabh meaning “hump-backed hill”, referring to Woodcock Hill. What is now the present day parish of Cratloe consists of two parts; the former parish of Kilfintinan and a portion of the contemporary parish of Killeely. This was agreed upon by priests in the 18th century, who claimed there was not enough members of the clergy to operate fully in both parishes.
