Country Museum Dundalk: An exhibition on the Irish in World War One, From Farm to Factory, Archaeology of Louth, Boundaries and Borders and Polar Exhibition.

World War One displays the involvement of the 16th (Irish) and 36th (Ulster) Irish Divisions. The exhibition examined some of the motivation that caused men to enlist and looked at their subsequent training leading to the Battle of the Somme. It also looked at the reception that many of these men had when they arrived home as well as the manner in which their efforts have been remembered.

From Farm to Factory: Louths' Industrial Legacy looks at the development of industry in the region. The Archaeology of Louth tells the story of Louth from the Mesolithic period to the end of the Iron Age. Boundaries and Borders: Historic Louth deals with Louth from the early Medieval period to the present day.

Polar Exhibition displays the story of an Arctic explorer, Sir Francis Leopold McClintock and is best remembered for discovering the fate of John Franklin whose expedition went missing whilst trying to locate the Northwest Passage.
