Ireland’s border counties was very much impacted by the conflict in and about Northern Ireland. Bomb and gun attacks left many dead or injured; others were imprisoned, both North and South.  Louth also became a refuge for many who fled the conflict.  In more recent times the county has received refugees from further afield, those displaced by conflicts in their own lands.
