Our Region

The East Border Region stretches from the lakes of Monaghan in the West to the coastline of the Ards peninsula in the East, through the majestic Mountains of Mourne to the Southern Shores of Lough Neagh, from the fishing village of Donaghadee through to the cathedral town of Drogheda and the Hill of Tara in Meath and enjoys a pivotal location at the centre of the Dublin-Belfast economic corridor

The East Border Region is very well linked to national and international markets with the ports and airports of Belfast and Dublin lying just outside the Region and with strategic rail and motorway links between the two capitals running through and serving the region.
