Strangford (from the Irish Baile Loch Cuan, meaning town on Strangford Lough)[3][4] is a small village at the mouth of Strangford Lough in County Down, Northern Ireland. It has a population of 475 according to the 2001 Census.

On the other side of the lough is Portaferry. Transport NI, an executive agency of the Department for Infrastructure, runs the Portaferry - Strangford Ferry between the two villages.[5] The village has a small harbour, which is overlooked by rows of 19th-century cottages and a fine Georgian terrace.

History

Strangford (strong-fjord) was the designated home of King Magnus (bare legs) Olafson. Upon his attempted siege of Uladh (ulster) he set up his fort in the (strong fjord) of Strangford. This was an ideal place for him to base himself and his army as he had good fortified grounds and quick access to an inland lough that leads directly out to the east onto the Irish Sea.

Despite having the same name, the village (and the wider ward of Strangford) is not in the Strangford parliamentary constituency or Assembly constituency, instead being in the South Down parliamentary constituency and Assembly constituency.

Sports

Strangford has two men's football teams who compete in the Newcastle & District Football League.
