St. Nicholas Quarter & Backlands Regeneration

The main aim of the St. Nicholas Quarter & Backlands Regeneration Project is to reinvigorate and transform St Nicholas Quarter. In doing so it will establish a new living and working quarter in the heart of Dundalk town centre. Louth County Council is implementing the vision conceived in the Dundalk Urban Design Framework Plan and building on the benefits of the inaugural projects, the Market Square (completed in 2011), and ClanbrassilStreet (completed in 2020).

The Vision seeks to radically transform the perception of the area by enabling the release of back-lands for development and creating new streets that promote increased connectivity and permeability within the area. The creation of a new look St Nicholas Quarter builds upon its rich history, heritage and natural quality of the environment which will be more attractive to the public, businesses, residents, investors and tourists.

The project is funded the Louth County Council and the Urban Regeneration Development Fund and is part of Project Ireland 2040.
