LOUTH COUNTY

 

Though in area, including the County of the town of Drogheda, only 201,618 statute acres, and the smallest county in Ireland, Louth deserves to rank among the most prosperous. The Eastern boundary is the Irish Sea, which gives to its commerce three outlets of considerable importance: Drogheda, Dundalk, and Greenore. These are also shipping points for Meath and Monaghan, the Southern and Western boundaries, and for Armagh, which with Carlingford Lough, bounds the county on the North.

 

For a long time previous to the entry of the English, Louth had formed part of Orgial, an independent Principality, consisting of a portion of the Province of Meath, and the entire of Armagh and Monaghan. The O'Carrols were Princes of Orgial. The barony of Louth was referred to particularly as their country. In 1183, John de Courcy conquered Orgial, and it was afterwards known by the English variously as Uriel and Oriel. The followers of de Courcy and de Lacy settled the portion of Orgial called English Oriel and in 1210 the County of Louth was formed from it by King John. Many castles were erected for the purpose of enabling the settlers to continue in possession. Their ruins are still to be found in every part of the county, adding greatly to the picturesqueness of the scenery. In 1315, Edward Bruce, brother of the Scottish King, on condition that he should aid them in driving the English out, was offered the Kingdom of Ireland by the Ulster Chiefs. Having landed with an army of 6,000 men, he soon became master of Ulster, and was crowned on the 2nd of May 1316. Toward the close of the year following he was killed, and his army defeated by the English.

 

Louth was one of the counties of the English Pale, and had a small standing force in 1437, commanded by Sir Laurence Taaf, Mayor of Drogheda, and Richard Bellew. During the reign of Queen Elizabeth, the Chiefs of Ulster, O'Nial and O'Donel, had become so formidable that they rejected a proposal to make Dundalk the frontier of the English possessions in Ireland. A conference was held at Faughart, in 1596, to arrange terms. Previous to that time Louth had been a part of Ulster. Soon afterward it was included in that of Leinster, and has so remained ever since. In the Parliamentary war of 1641, some fighting was done in the Northern and Southern portions of the county. Cromwell entered from Dublin at the head of 10,000 men in 1649, and having captured Drogheda, after two days' siege, marched through to Dundalk and received its surrender. In the Revolution, the armies of King James and King William traversed the County Louth, and finally struggled for the mastery on the banks of the Boyne, in 1690. The County of Louth and the County of the Borough of Drogheda returned twelve members to the Irish Parliament before the Union. Under the Redistribution Act of 1885, Louth is divided into two parts, North and South. Two members only will represent it in the Imperial Parliament.
