In the North East of Ireland lays the little town of Navan, well I say little it’s actually the fifth biggest town in Ireland and has the tenth largest urban settlement in Ireland, with a population of about 28,600. Navan is the main town in the County Meath and is known as the “Heritage Capitol of Ireland”. Navan was founded around the time of the Norman invasion of Ireland which was led by Hugh de Lacy and for his participation was granted the county of Heath by King Henry II of England in 1172. Hugh de Lacy then awarded one of his loyal knights the Barony of Navan where he built a fort from which the town started.
Now a days Navan is famous for its mining and has the biggest lead and zinc mine in Europe, other famous things that come from Navan are the Navan carpet industry but unfortunately this fell into decline around the turn of the century. Of course Navan’s most famous export is that of Pierce Brosnan, who of course played James Bond, was born and spent most of his childhood in Navan.
