Carlingford Abbey, County Louth

From the Illustrated Dublin Journal, Volume 1, Number 33, April 19, 1862

THE above engraving gives a correct idea of the picturesque ruins of Carlingford Abbey, which was situated on the eastern side of the town, and whose long aisle and central belfry, being of the pointed architecture of the fourteenth century, would naturally place the date of its erection about that period. It is said to have been built by Richard, Earl of Ulster. The scenery in this direction is of a very interesting description. In proceeding towards the little town of Carlingford, from Newry, the road to which lies along the water's edge, nothing can exceed the grandeur and beauty of the prospect.
