THINGS TO SEE IN TRIM
FOR THE PEOPLE OF MEATH
Windows On The Past
We would like to make visiting our Town an experience that will live in your memory for a very long time and given the Historical value of Trim, this should be very easy.
So if you are looking for some things to do and see in our beautiful Town of Trim here in Co. Meath we have compiled a list for you.
Constructed over 3 decades the it is the largest Anglo-
Saint Patrick’s | Trim Cathedral
The church was upgraded to cathedral status in the 20th century though Bishops have been enthroned there since the 16th century wikipida
The 7 Arch Bridge
The 7 Arch Bridge South West of Trim, lies 1 KM from Scurlogstown's ‘spiritual home' Jack Quinn's pub and is within sight of the Knightsbrook Hotel. It is perhaps unique in its structure -
The Yellow Steeple derives its name from the golden colour of the stonework at sunset. It is a tall tower that was originally part of an Augustinian Abbey, St Mary's. St. Mary's Abbey is a former Augustinian Abbey dedicated to the Blessed Virgin. The abbey was situated on the north bank of the River Boyne, opposite Trim Castle, on land given to St. Patrick who is often credited with founding the abbey.The abbey was a prominent pilgrimage site, famous for the healing power of its statue of the Virgin Mary, until its dissolution under Henry VIII during the Reformation.
The cathedral of St Peter & Paul
The Cathedral of St. Peter and Paul is one of the largest in the country. Taking into account that the remains of the Cathedral left behind today are gigantic in size, they are still but a fraction of the size of the building that originally stood.
The Wellington Column
Field Marshal Arthur Wellesley, also known as the 1st Duke of Wellington, had this column erected in recognition of his illustrious career. Significantly -
“This column was erected in the year 1817 in honour of the illustrious Duke of Wellington by the grateful contributions of the people of Meath.”
Standing at a height of 75 feet the column can be found at the corner of Fair Green.
The priory of St John the Baptist
Founded by Simon DeRochfort in the early 13th century it was occupied by the ‘The Crutched Friars’ or Augustinian Monks. These remains which were in fact, in all their glory, a Hospital caring for the sick. What stands today is a church including a nave and chancel. In the large remaining east facing wall there are three huge cavities where windows once stood in splendour view . Dissolved in the 16th century by Henry VIII the building was used as a private dwelling.
