WHERE?

Carlingford and The Cooley Peninsula are situated in the north east corner of county Louth, midway between Belfast and Dublin. The area as a whole and Carlingford in particular has a rich historical heritage primarily because of the Tain Bo Culainge or the Cattle Raid of Cooley, an ancient Irish saga. See www.carlingford.ie for more info
