Important river

The Boyne River gives life to one of the oldest and most important counties of Ireland, Meath County. The river runs a course of more than 112 kilometers. It begins in Trinity Well, Newbury Hall, near Carbury, County Kildare, and flows towards the Northeast through Meath county before emptying into the Irish Sea at the height of Drogheda.

Its an important site for fishing as there are abundant amounts of salmon and trout. Despite its relatively short journey, the Boyne has been important to the history, archeology and Irish mythology. This river passes near the ancient city of Trim, Trim Castle and the Hill of Tara (former headquarters of the Kings of Ireland), Navan, the Hill of Slane, Newgrange (archaeological site), Mellifont Abbey and the city Medieval Drogheda. In the Boyne Valley, there are plenty of historical and archaeological monuments that include Loughcrew, Kells, celtic crosses, castles and more. The Battle of the Boyne took place on the banks of the river in 1690. Photos are from the Trim area the video is of the Boyne River.
