Carlingford Lough Maritime Festival
21 July 2013
Carlingford Lough Maritime Festival will see a tall ship sail into the Lough as far as Newry Canal. There will also be an emigration re-enactment organised by the Greenore Historical Association and the Killowen Historical Society. With folk singers from Killowen and residents from both sides of the Lough recounting stories of those who left to seek a better life on ships which set sail from Greenore and Warrenpoint it will be a poignant reminder of how emigration has played such a large role in Irish society down through the years. Date to be confirmed.
