Meath is one of the outer surrounding counties of Dublin and many if its inhabitants commute to the city to work. The capital town is Navan where the Boyne and Blackwater rivers join. This Region stretches from Enfield on its West side to the costal towns of Laytown / Bettystown on the East and from Dunboyne and Clonee on the Dublin border to the outskirts of Kingscourt in Cavan to the north, and with the motorways of M1/2/3 and 4 running through it, this Region is within easy reach of the rest of the Section.
The area is significant for its many famous tourist attractions including the hill of Tara, the Neolithic site at Newgrange and it includes Dowth and Knowth / Oldbridge where the battle of the Boyne took place. Trim castle and Loughcrew are also places of historical importance and interest and the Region boasts two of the finest racecourses in the country; Fairyhouse and Navan.
