Ballagan Spit from the coastal road
The area around the Ballagan Spit which extends about 1.6km out to sea at the SW entrance to the Carlingford Lough is regarded for the purpose of shipping as foul ground with many detached boulders. A recent survey showed that the seaward end of the spit which encroaches on to the Hoskyn Channel (one of two entrances to the Lough) and marked on charts as being covered by 1.8m of water at high water, is actually only covered to a depth of 0.4m.
