Steam Threshing Museum & Parkland
The Moynalty Steam Threshing Festival came into existence in 1976. It takes place in the picturesque village of Moynalty in the North Meath hinterland. In the beginning the event was held at the local G.A.A grounds in Bellair. Then we moved to our now permanent premises on the banks of the Borora River.

Kells, or Ceanannas Mór, meaning Great Fort, was known to be a royal residence before St. Colmcille established a religious settlement in Kells in 550. It is considered by many historians to be one of the most important monastic sites in Ireland. A walk through the town will lead visitors to realise that its physical treasures are the monastic layout of the town. The trail commences at the Town Hall and Tourist information point (located beside the Headfort Arms Hotel at Headfort Place) where you will find parking.
