Clogherhead is located 14km north-east of Drogheda. It is a fishing village with a harbour and pier called Port Oriel. In the face of the headland is the "Red Cave" which gets its name from the red stain left by a fungus. There are excellent beaches nearby and this area has strong links with Saint Oliver Plunkett. It is said that he ordained many priests at Glasspistol, 1km south of the village.
