The Mayor of Louth, Councillor Darren Hobson unveils the plaque dedicated to those who not only lost their lives in the Flood in 1920, but whose lost family, friends, homes and their livelihoods. Anita Muchall (Louth Museum) tells of the significance of the rosemary bush also planted (often used on coffins at that time) and Jessica Mackett (Spout Yard Park) explains how Spout Yard was central to the devastation caused by the flood.
