Collon is a village and townland in the south west corner of County Louth, Ireland on the N2 national primary road. The village is home to the Cistercian Abbey of New Mellifont. The Church of Ireland parish church at the lower end was built in 1810 to a design by Daniel Augustine Beaufort who was the rector between 1789 and 1821. There is a memorial in the graveyard at the front of the church to men of the parish who died during the 1914-18 Great War, inscribed on the front is the name of Lt. James Samuel Emerson V.C. who was born in the village. The church has been described as "dramatic and atmospheric" and hosts the 2008 Ardee Baroque Festival.show more
