Hidden History of the Porchfields and Newtown Trim, Co. Meath

The route from Trim Castle to Newtown Trim through the porch fields is a popular walk for locals and became even more so during the lockdown period. The history and archaeology of the Medieval Town and Castle are well known but less is known about the Porchfields and the borough of Newtown Trim.

In 2021 Meath County Council received funding from the Irish Walled Town Network (Heritage Council) to develop an audio-visual guide for the walk from the Sheep gate (across from Trim Castle) to Newtown Trim explaining the hidden history of the route from prehistory to the present.
