Largy (from Irish: Leargaidh, meaning "hillside")[1] is a small hamlet and townland in County Londonderry, Northern Ireland. It is 5 km south of Limavady, beside the B192 Limavady to Dungiven road. In 1991, its population was 90 but in the 2001 Census this had risen to 144. It is situated within Causeway Coast and Glens district.


The village is a linear settlement with a church, primary school and other community facilities. In recent years, new housing at Brookfield Park and Pollysbrae Road has led to the rise in population.[2]



  • Largy Presbyterian Church, built in the traditional meeting house style, was founded in 1834, and was extended in 1861 to cater for higher attendances following the 1859 revival. Re-roofing and refurbishment took place in 1994. There are about 130 families associated with the congregation.[3]
