Clann Cheallaigh[1] (Irish)
Sovereign state United Kingdom
Country Northern Ireland
County Fermanagh

Clankelly () is a barony in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland.[2] It is the only barony in County Fermanagh not connected to Lough Erne.[2] It is bordered by two other baronies in Northern Ireland: Coole to the south-west; and Magherastephana to the north-west.[2] It also borders two baronies in the Republic of Ireland: Monaghan to the north-east; and Dartree to the south-east.

Clankelly takes its name from Cellach, son of Tuathal, a king of the Ui Chremthainn. The MacDonnell (Irish: Mac Domhnaill) sept of the Clann Cheallaigh are noted here, and by the 13th century, the O'Cannons (Irish: Ó Canannain) who had been ousted as kings of Cinel Conaill settled here for a period.[3][4]
