The hipFaughart Upper, Carewamean Road, Armagh/Louth Unapproved Road
The border runs up the middle of the Carewamean Road. It was spiked on the northern side of the crossing. The spikes were removed by locals.
Further up the road into Northern Ireland the road was cratered by the British Army. When the locals were filling in the crater the British Army were en-route to stop them but a local cut down trees to block them access along the road. The road was never re-cratered.
