This town in County Meath is situated 25 miles from Dublin . Because of its historic buildings and monuments, Trim was designated as a Heritage Town by Failte Ireland. The town used to be the centre of Norman power at its peak.

Trim Castle , the largest medieval castle in Ireland, was founded by Hugh de Lacy in 1173 and was destroyed a year later by Rory O'Connor. The castle you see today was the replacement built around 1200 AD.
