Meath... Land of Mystery and History

Ireland Map
The Gael Saoire Meath... Land of Mystery and History
Rath Cairn and Baile Ghib, in the Meath Gaeltacht, is in the land of Kings, the very core of Celtic Ireland... "Here sat in days of yore Kings with golden crowns upon their heads..." County Meath is truly timeless. It must be a source of great pride to the spirits of Ireland`s High Kings, Queens and Celtic Warriors, that in two small townlands called Rath Cairn and Baile Ghib their noble Gaelic still survives as a spoken language.

Beside the Rath Cairn and Baile Ghib Gaeltacht is the medieval town of Áth Buí (Athboy) meaning the town of the yellow Ford, with some of its original walls still intact. The Church of Ireland in Athboy has an interesting medieval table tomb and just two miles away is the Hill of Ward, and Iron Age Fort, and once the reputed seat of the High Kings of Ireland.
