|Limavady Borough Today|
Modern Limavady town is a thriving centre with a population of around 13,000. A busy shopping and market centre for the district, it is also home to many industries and is an ideal base from which to explore the spectacular Causeway Coast area. The town still holds firmly to its long history. Many of the buildings and entrance arches show how the town would have looked in Georgian times and the weekly cattle market each Monday has been taking place since the 17th century.
The site of the old town and O'Cahan's castle can be visited in the nearby Roe Valley Country Park and numerous other sites of historic interest are only a short drive away. Some of these are described in the Tourism Section.
