St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Trim
The Diocesan Cathedral of Meath is situated in the historic town of Trim, 25 miles north-east of Dublin. Because of its close proximity to Dublin, the town and surrounding area is seen as part of the commuter belt. The surrounding countryside is probably made up of some of the best agricultural land in the country. The present Church was built in 1803. It replaced an earlier church, which dated back to the 15th century.
St. James’ Church, Athboy
St. James, is situated in the centre of the town of Athboy (7.5 miles west of Trim). Athboy is a small market town, where many of the local businesses have a close connection with the surrounding farmers. There is a small influx of young families moving into the area from Dublin, and travelling to the city to work.
