County town of Louth, the port of Dundalk on the south bank of the Kilcurry estuary is one of the largest provincial towns in Ireland. The salt-marshes and mud-flats to the East are a haven for wild birds. A medieval town, Dundalk was granted a charter in 1189 and was prosperous until its destruction by Sir Henry Tichbourne in 1642.
