Louth Bird Sanctuaries
There are three bird sanctuaries in County Louth, at Ballymascanlon, Lurgangreen and The Boyne estuary. Maps are provided below. It is an offence to shoot or otherwise hunt birds in these areas. In my experience the sanctuaries have been generally respected by the local gun clubs, though sometimes hunters from outside the county do shoot them, maybe from ignorance.
