Edenderry is a town in the north of County Offaly, Ireland. It is near the borders with Counties Kildare, Meath and Westmeath. The Grand Canal passes immediately south of the town through the Bog of Allen and there is a short spur to the town centre. The R401 road from Kinnegad to the north and the R402 from Enfield to the east join at the northeastern end of the Main St. At the Grand Canal they separate, with the R402 continuing westwards towards Tullamore and the R401 heads south to Rathangan and Kildare Town. Edenderry is close to the peat-burning Edenderry Power Station - the first Independent Power Producer (I.P.P) in Ireland, situated in Clonbullogue a few kilometres to the south.
