Dundalk (dŭnˈdôlkˌ) [key], city (1990 pop. 65,800), Baltimore co., NE Md., a suburb of Baltimore, on the Patapsco River; inc. 1946. It has one of the world's largest steel plants and a nine-berth marine terminal, operated by the Maryland Port Authority. Factories there make electronic parts, auto bodies, and yachts.
