Name Ardee Cuchulainn Statue County Louth Nearest Town Ardee Access Road N2 About After Dundalk and Drogheda, Ardee is the busiest town in County Louth.

Originally it was a market town and its long wide main street is evidence of this.

The river Dee runs through the town and has a picturesque riverside walk.

Close to the river is a statue of Cuchulainn carrying Ferdia.

The river Dee is the location where they fought during the epic ancient saga of the Cattle Raid of Cooley (Tain Bo Chuailgne).

They were step brothers who were tricked into fighting each other with Cuchulainn being the sorry victor.

Ardee castle can also be seen on the main street and looks well at night when it is lit up.

There are many pubs and restaurants in the town and is well worth a visit.
