Ardee

Ardee is the place where Cu Chulainn fought Ferdia, who was hired by Queen Maeve of Connaught. Part of the Tain Bo Cuailnge epic, Ferdia was slain by Cu Chulainn at the ford of the river Dee. The town derives it name from the fallen warrior - Ath Fherdia, Ardee, the Ford of Ferdia. Just before Ardee is a 15th century tower which has a murder hole above the main doorway, and has a wonderful view from the roof.
