Quick Overview

The Kingdom of Mourne, Bloody Bridge River.


Mourne Mountains, Newcastle, Co Down. During the 18th Century the coast from Newcastle south to Greencastle was notorious for smuggling. Brandy, wine, tobacco, tea and silk entered via the Isle of Man and were conveyed the Mournes to Hilltown along a path which became known as Brandy Pad. Nowadays a popular walking route, the Brandy Pad still crosses the Mournes from east to west and extends from the coast at Bloody Bridge to the pass of Hare's Gap on the mountains' northern rim.
