Location Notes:

The 2nd International Sea Trout Symposium will be held in Dundalk (Ireland) which is a pretty, historic town (charter granted in 1189) located in County Louth.  The town’s name, which was historically written in Irish as Dún Dealgan (meaning Dalgan’s Stronghold), has associations with the mythical warrior Cú Chulainn.  Dundalk has a long connection with sea trout as it is situated where the famous sea trout river, the Castletown River, flows into Dundalk Bay. The town is close to the border with Northern Ireland and equidistant from Dublin and Belfast.
