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
