  History: Counties Louth, Monaghan and Cavan occupy an area known as the Drumlin Belt, Drumlins are small, teardrop shaped hills that were created by retreating glaciers during
the last ice age, and this area is covered with them. The name Monoghan means “little. hills” in Irish. The area is generally quite fertile.


May God bless the Irish, one and all.
