Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ashbourne, historically called Killeglan or Kildeglan, is a town in County Meath, Ireland. It is about 20 km north of Dublin city centre and is bypassed by the M2 motorway. Hugh de Lacey set about building fortified houses, called mottes and baileys, in case the native Irish would regroup and attack. The remains of a motte and bailey can be found in Ratoath 5 km from Ashbourne. Once settled, Hugh de Lacey divided the land among his army. A large portion at Killeglan was given to a family called Wafre in 1220.show more
