Images of Meath

Book: Meath
This is a fascinating collection of images from County Meath, accompanied by a warm and lively narrative. Tommy Murray presents intimate snapshots of Meath life since the 1930s; characters big and small, such as Michael Collier, Meath's own Robin Hood, and events that gripped the public, from harvests and horse racing to the descent of Hollywood in 1994, when "Braveheart "was filmed in Trim. This resource pays homage to the people of Meath, with engaging and often poignant images of the locals, young and old, at work and at play. This work is a fantastic record of County Meath and the lives played out against its beautiful backdrop of landmarks and wildflowers.
