Kilkelly (Irish: Cill Cheallaigh) is a village in Kilmovee parish County Mayo, Ireland. It is just south of Knock International Airport, lying between the Airport and the town of Knock itself. The village is along the N17, a national primary road running between Galway and Sligo.

Kilkelly is notable due to the song “Kilkelly, Ireland”, written by American song writer Peter Jones, who discovered a series of letters to his Irish immigrant ancestor by that ancestor’s father, mother and siblings with one of the letters written by a schoolmaster in Kilkell
