NEW VIDEO - a stroll around Trim town (& castle), Co.Meath

Trim. Yes, it is. Very trim indeed.
Prior to visiting Trim this week, my only impression of this place was via various scenes from "Braveheart" (yes, that film was recorded largely in Trim castle.) I was curious to see what it was really like.
Often, Irish towns are over-sold and then under-deliver.
Not Trim. It was wonderful.
A very beautiful town, with a great location on the River Boyne. Over the town, looms the largest Norman castle in Ireland.
In addition, it is surrounded by various other historic monuments - Tara, an Augustinian abbey and a Tudor house (where the Duke of Wellington went to school).
Well done to the locals and Meath County Council for keeping the town in such good order.
Visit it. You won't be disappointed.
