There are a number of ways to mix Groovy and Clojure. You can access Clojure classes from Groovy and vice versa by pre-compiling.
You can access via Java 6's scripting API: JSR-223 access to other JVM languages
You can also get access to Clojure's classes from Groovy, e.g. (for Groovy 1.7 snapshot):
Or interact via creating a new Process (again for Groovy 1.7 snapshot):
Another option is to use the Clojure API like this:
There is also a Clojure plugin for Grails which provides easy access to execute clojure code from any Grails artifact (controllers, taglibs, services etc...): http://grails.org/plugin/clojure
