Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ballymascanlan, otherwise Ballymascanlon, is a small village and townland in County Louth, Ireland, situated 4 km north-east of Dundalk on the road to Carlingford. The name Ballymascanlan means "town of the son of Scanlan" a reference to Scanlan, son of Fingin, chief of the Ui M ith, who died in 672. The Ui M ith were rulers of the kingdom of Oriel until the Anglo-Norman period. An Ui Meith is credited with having defeated the Danes in Dundalk Bay in 833. In 1185, during the Norman-English period, the district of Ballymascanlan as far north as Carrikarnon was donated by Hugh de Lacy to the Cistercian Abbey of Mellifont.show more
