Killea is a village on the borders of the counties of Donegal and Londonderry. Its name is from the Irish Cill Fhéich, meaning "Fiach's church".

In recent years, many new homes have been built in the area and the village now acts largely as a commuter village for Londonderry. The majority of the village lies in County Donegal, but the residential area has spilled over into County Londonderry to the east.
