Clogherhead.
 

Clogherhead is a little fishing village situated a little south of Clogher Head the most easterly point of Co Louth. The harbour hewn from the rock, is home to a small fleet of trawlers, fishing the Irish sea mostly for prawns. A few of the larger boats sometimes venture to the Clyde in Scotland, when catches at home decline. Crabs and lobsters are also landed at the port In recent years an extension has been added to the old harbour affording the fleet a little more protection from the storms of the Irish Sea

The village is located about a mile inland from the harbour. It was from the area around the town that, the builders of Newgrange and surrounding monuments quarried or collected the building stones, before transporting them along the coast and up he river Boyne by barge.
