The River Glyde rises in the town of Bailieborough in Cavan. Some smaller tributaries of the Glyde are the River Dee and the Killanny Rivers which contain stocks of sea trout and salmon. The Glyde flows in a south-easterly direction before entering the sea at Annagassan in Louth, site of the recently rediscovered ninth-century Viking longphort Linn Duachaill.[citation needed]

The salmon and sea trout season here is from 1 February - 20 August. The upper reaches of the Glyde are known as the Lagan River which is deep and slow-flowing. The Lagan and Kilanny River meet at Tully, Co. Louth, and form the River Glyde.

The Glyde Rangers Gaelic Athletic Association team, founded in 1926, from Tallanstown in Co. Louth is named after the River Glyde.
