Ardee was given by King John to a Norman Knight, Gilbert De Pipard. It was he who built the Castle which is the last remaining fortified Castle in Ireland, in 1207. Both King James II and William of Orange stayed here prior to the Battle of the Boyne but, at seperate occasions. Edward Bruce sacked Ardee in 1315. This is the only part of County Louth that was planted by the English.
