Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Kilkeel is located on the South East coast of Co. Down in Northern Ireland. It takes its name from the old 13th church ruins in the centre of the town, cill-caol (Gaelic) meaning the church of the narrows.It is believed that this old church was financed by a Spanish noble family after their son had been drowned and washed ashore and given a christian burial by the locals. However there are references to Kilkeel as a christian settlement as far back as the 11th century. Kilkeel is the capital of the ancient Kingdom of Mourne and even today the surrounding area is referred to as the Kingdom of Mourne. The current population is about 5500, and the Kingdom of Mourne population is around 8500.The area is surrounded by the Irish Sea on two sides and the Mourne Mountains on the other two sides and has only three access roads from the rest of Northern Ireland. The main occupations of the area are farming and fishing. Kilkeel has the largest fishing fleet in Ireland with over 120 trawlers. There is also a small Granite industry, which used to be much larger with granite products being exported to England. Its has a number of fish processing factories which speciallise in the processing of prawns. Kilkeel is also the European headquarters of BAE Aerospace and produces aircraft seats.
