The name Trim comes from the Irish ‘Baile Atha Troim’, which translates as ‘the town of the ford of the alder trees’ and its origin dates back to the 5th century A.D. Among its more recent claims to fame, is the filming of a major part of ‘Braveheart’ at Trim Castle. Trim is part of the Boyne Valley, located on the east coast of Ireland in County Meath, whcih contains the largest and most decorated megalithic sites in all of Ireland. It has been described as “the largest and most important expression of prehistoric megalithic art in Europe”. The large Megalithic sites were built over 5000 years ago between 3800 and 3200 BC – built before both Stonehenge in England and the great pyramids in Egypt! Within a three square mile radius in the Boyne Valley are grouped more than 30 prehistoric monuments including the great passage tombs and their satellite structures, standing stones, barrows and other enclosures. The great sites of the Boyne Valley include Newgrange, Knowth, Dowth, Loughcrew, Fourknocks and the Hill of Tara. Neolithic communities built these sites over earlier sacred spots and it is suspected that they were used for a combination of different purposes, including burial tombs, sacred temples and astronomical observatories.
