Riva Brasserie on Earl Street - the ancestral home of The Democrat - was the venue for the launch night of the new-look Dundalk Democrat on Tuesday night.
Current and former staff were joined by local councillors, politicians and readers for a night of fond reflections on the past and bold new plans for the future of Dundalk's favourite paper.
Speaking on the night, Managing Editor David Lynch thanked everyone for attending, while also giving an insight into the new-look and the brand new sections in the newspaper.
