The Boyne Valley is a place of history, myths and legends. This rich valley is home to some of Ireland's most famous heritage sites and monuments – Tara, Newgrange, Kells and the Battle of the Boyne site – but there are many others including Trim Castle, Loughcrew, Monasterboice and Mellifont which are major attractions in their own right. A landscape of passage tombs, sacred hills, monastic ruins, bloody battlefields and heritage towns – no wonder the Boyne Valley is considered the birthplace of Ireland’s Ancient East. The legends, stories and history of these places have been brought together by local historian and guide Noel French who has been studying and publishing in relation to the area for the past thirty years.
