Ballinlough, Cork

Ballinlough (Irish: Baile an Locha, meaning "town of the lake") is a suburb on the southside of Cork city, in Ireland. It is located between Ballintemple and the larger suburbs of Douglas and Blackrock.

There are three primary schools situated in Ballinlough: St. Anthony's Boys National School, Eglantine Girls National School, and Our Lady of Lourdes Girls National School.

The Community Centre in Ballinough includes a public park and a number of buildings which host community activities. The main building hosts indoor bowls, bingo, and a Montessori school. The 38th/40th Cork Scout Group (a member of Scouting Ireland) is also based in the community centre in Ballinlough, as are the Junior, Intermediate and Senior youth clubs (affiliated with Ógra Chorcaí).

Ballinlough is an independent parish of the Cork and Ross Catholic Diocese and is home to Our Lady of Lourdes church. The youth club leaders run a youth café every Friday night for young people in secondary school, in the Canon Horgan Hall.

Ballinlough Tennis Club has five outdoor courts in the community centre complex, and the Páirc Uí Rinn Gaelic Athletic Association grounds and the Cork Constitution rugby club lie on the border between Ballinlough and Ballintemple.
