The hip

Faughart Upper, Carewamean Road, Armagh/Louth Unapproved Road

memories

  • 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.
