Home:The Royal County

I live in the Beautiful County of Meath, surrounded by many ancient ruins and heritage sites. On our first Sun-filled Saturday of Summer 2018 I took a drive out to Bective Abbey which is a beautiful Cistercian Abbey on the Banks of the River Boyne, About 7km outside of Trim. The abbey is little gem just off the main Trim- Navan road. A perfect place for a picnic as it is relatively quiet and not over populated with tourists. After enjoying the sights of the abbey I arrived back in to Trim and took a walk around. Trim is my local town, and even after all these years it still amazes me at just how beautiful it is. It is a town steeped in heritage, most importantly Trim Castle, build in the 1100s, it is the largest Anglo-Norman Castle in Ireland. It is well worth a visit. Along the banks of the river boyne is a walk which leads from the castle out to the ruins of Newtown abbey and St.Johns Priory. Along this walk as you take in the sights of Trim Castle, the Yellow Steeple or St.Patricks Church you might be greeted by some local sheep whom roam freely on the land, known locally as the PorchFields.
