Athboy

Athboy (Irish: Baile Átha Buí), is a small agricultural town in County Meath in the Republic of Ireland. It is located on the junction of the N51 and R154 roads. The town is located on the Yellow Ford River, in wooded country near the County Westmeath border.

History

In medieval times it was a walled stronghold of the Pale. Owen Roe O'Neill took it in 1643, and six years later Oliver Cromwell camped his army on the Hill of Ward nearby. Also known as Tlachtga, the Hill of Ward was the location for the pagan feast of Samhain, the precursor of modern day Halloween.

The tower of the Protestant church is a remnant of a fourteenth-century Carmelite priory. Behind the church are the remains of the town walls.
