The village in the valley!
Irene is located so that it is in three counties—Clay, Turner, and Yankton—which is an exceptional feat for this village in the valley! When the 2010 census was held, Irene had a population of 437.
Irene takes pride in its community. Irene is home to an annual rodeo that is held in June each summer.
