The hamlet itself is situated on the shores of Carlingford Lough at the gateway to the Mourne Mountains, an area of outstanding natural beauty steeped in history and mythology. And though we couldn’t find a picture or likeness to verify the following claim, we suspect that the warrior with the flowing blonde mane pictured here is none other than Fionn MacCumhaill, the Irish giant who is said to have scared off a marauding Scottish giant by hurling a huge granite boulder across the lough and hitting him on the head. Horder does an exemplary job with her promotion for the Great Northern Railway Company, creating a travel promotion for an off-the-beaten path destination that plays to a locale’s given strengths rather than trying to make it out to be anything more than it is.
