Louth (County Louth)
Our aim is to connect all people with a link to Louth. You may live here, have visited here or maybe are tracing ancestors who left long ago. In any case, we’re sure to have lots to share and are delighted to welcome you.
Feel free to post your message and we will respond as soon as possible. Remember to post as much information as you can with regard to the people you are researching. The more information you post, the more likely it is that one of our volunteers will be able to advise or assist you. Also include information concerning which sources you may
have already used so others may further your search.
Please be patient - as our programme has only begun to rollout across
the island of Ireland and volunteers in some areas may not yet be

Louth (Irish: La) is a village at the heart of County Louth, Ireland. It is roughly 11 km south-west of the town of Dundalk.
The county takes its name from the village, which was once an important town. The original Irish name for both village and county was Lughbhaidh but today it is standardised and simplified as La. It was named after the Irish god Lugh.
The population has soared in the last decade, with a constant programme of building of new homes in and around the village. In 2002, it had a population of 514, an increase of 28 per cent in just six years.
The village is home to the former TD for Louth, Eddie Filgate,and 2008 Louth Rose Karol-Ann Keenan
