Nestled between Co. Down on it’s northern shores and the Cooley Peninsula, Co. Louth on the South, the area around Carlingford Lough is one of outstanding natural beauty. Steeped in legend and history the area has something for everyone. We hope our website helps you to explore and fall in love with all it has to offer.
This week's photo is from Ciaran Mathers - he stopped to take in this stunning scenery while descending Slieve Commedagh in the Mournes last Sunday. The Mourne wall leads the way over the snowy tops of Corragh and Slievenaglogh to the mighty Slieve Bearnagh. Spot the hikers taking in the slippery slopes. Ciaran lives in Newry and is an amateur photographer. He loves nothing better than grabbing his camera and heading out to try and capture something special. He started hiking properly last year and has been hooked ever since. In Ciaran's own words:
"Nothing beats clearing the head, than going for a walk or a hike. With views like this you can forget what is going on in the world for those few minutes. Moments like these we cherish and that keeps us going"
