On May 29th 2020, we mark the 100th anniversary of the Great Louth Flood. On this very sad day many people died, some of them children, and there was massive devastation to homes and buildings in our town. 23 people died… 50 houses were destroyed… 800 people were left homeless. Find out more about the Great Flood of Louth on our website including nearly 100 photos kindly shared with us by Louth Museum.
