In 1963, Greenore Port became the first port in the Republic of Ireland to handle containerised traffic. Situated just inside the entrance to Carlingford Lough, the port is located next to the important Dublin- Belfast Economic Corridor, which is connected to the M1 motorway by 15km of uncongested roadway. An Bord Pleanala, the Irish planning authority, has deemed Greenore Port one of the country’s critical infrastructure assets.
