See J4037 : Coastal path, Dundrum (1). Unfortunately the concept of the inalienable public path (denoted by a red dotted line on OS maps in England and Wales) is almost entirely unknown in the whole of Ireland. District councils in NI may designate paths as public or as rights of way but this can only be done where there is a path in the first instance. This one is a new creation but, as can be seen from the notice, is neither public nor a right of way – an even rarer entity.
The Belfast and County Down Railway

The Belfast and County Down Railway ran from Queen’s Quay station in Belfast to Castlewellan via Comber, Downpatrick and Newcastle. There were also lines from Comber to Donaghadee via Newtownards, Belfast to Bangor and branches from Ballynahinch Jct to Ballynahinch and Downpatrick to Ardglass. The lines opened between 1848 and 1892. All closed by 1950 except for Castlewellan – Newcastle which survived until 1955 as part of the GNR(I) route from Belfast via Banbridge and the Bangor line which remains open but from Belfast Central.
