Clogherhead, County Louth
It was always border country and therefore debatable land.
It guarded the Gap of the North.
This was the pass that runs from the plains of Leinster into the hills of Ulster.
It is a highly cultivated fertile county of undulating pastures.
But it also has long sandy beaches and quiet fishing villages.
One of these fishing villages is Clogher.
It is a pleasant straggle of whitewashed cottages going down to the sea.
Behind the village is Clogher Head which is 183 feet high.
On the North side is the harbour and the dune backed strand beach which stretches for a mile and a half.
It’s worth stopping on any tours of Ireland and if the Irish Sea is in a rough mood it can be quite dramatic.
