Europe's largest underground lead-zinc mine, Tara Mines, has operated in the area since 1977, at a location to the west of Navan. This is the basis of a long quarrying tradition.[citation needed] A large cement plant near Duleek is situated in this territory. Current ore production from the mine is 2,600,000 tonnes of ore per year, containing over 200,000 tonnes of zinc metal.[17] Glacial deposits of gravel exist in a band stretching from the Offaly border at Edenderry, to the sea at Laytown.

The Gaeltacht is split into an area northwest of Navan and east of Kells, known as Baile Ghib and Domhnach Phdraig, and an area close to the towns of Athboy and Trim, known as Rath Chirn.[15] In addition, there are 1,304 pupils attending the seven Gaelscoileanna outside the Gaeltacht area.[16] The Greater Dublin area has the highest number of Irish-medium schools in Ireland. There are 2,533 Irish-language speakers, or Gaeilgeoir, in County Meath,[14] with 1,299 native speakers in the Meath Gaeltacht.

The county town is Navan, where the county hall and government are located, although Trim, the former county town, has historical significance and remains a sitting place of the circuit court. Meath has seven land borders and also a small stretch of coastline stretching from Mornington to Gormanston beach. County Meath also has the only two Gaeltacht areas in the province of Leinster, at Rth Chairn and Baile Ghib. The counties bordering Meath are: Dublin, Westmeath, Louth, Offaly, Kildare, Cavan, and Monaghan.

The seat of the High King of Ireland was at Tara. The county is colloquially known by the nickname "The Royal County", owing to its history as the seat of the High King of Ireland.[6][7][8] It formed from the eastern part of the former Kingdom of Mide (see Kings of Mide) but now forms part of the province of Leinster. The archaeological complex of Br na Binne is 5,000 years old, and includes the burial sites of Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth,[9] in the north-east of the county. Historically, the kingdom and its successor territory the Lordship of Meath, included all of counties Meath, Fingal and Westmeath as well as parts of counties Cavan, Longford, Louth, Offaly and Kildare.


This population growth has seen divergent trends emerge in recent years, with mild depopulation in the north and west of the county being more than offset by large increases in the population of the eastern and south-eastern parts of the county, principally owing to inward migration to districts that have good proximity via road to the business parks on the western outskirts of Dublin.

Slane v Kilmainhamwood is possibly the pick of Div4 prior to the split. Cortown, Moylagh, Kilbride, Slane and Clann to come out top.

Big weekend ahead in A Leagues with lots of semifinal and final places still undecided.Kells v Summerhill looks to be the pick of the fixtures in Div1 closely followed by Tones v Simonstown.Kells, Oldcastle, NOM, Ratoath, Na Fianna, Simonstown and Donaghmore to go home with the points.

Summerhill and Navan O'Mahony's are on top with 20pts, Simonstown are on 19pts and Kells are on 18pts with only one match left to play. There have been some very entertaining matches with little negative football throughout the campaign. Division 1 is very competitive with only 2 points between the top 4 teams. The best of luck to all teams in all divisions.

Corn an Boinne has given Ballinabrackey momentum. Its then a shoot out between Ballinlough and Meath Hill for the last spot. Duleek will have too much for a weakened Ashbourne. Black Hall v Walterstown - WalterstownDunboyne v Dunderry - DunderryAshbourne v Duleek - DuleekDunderry and Duleek safe due to superior points difference to Walterstown leaving Walterstown v Black Hall game as winner takes all in unless Dunderry slip up against Dunboyne. Oldcastle v Drumbaragh - OldcastleMeath Hill v Ballinlough - BallinloughNobber v Kilmainham - NobberNobber and Oldcastle will come from A with little fuss. Promoted Walterstown should have enough to overcome an improving Black Hall side. Game between these 2 could go either way. Giving Ballinlough the nod if P Byrne starts.Castletown v Trim - TrimMichaels v Ballinabrackey - BracksSyddan v Bective - BectiveIn B, Castletown & Trim safe. The Micks V Ballinabrackey game a knockout match.

This increase was mainly due to a baby boom locally. The population of Co. The population then continued to increase at a constant rate, before increasing at an explosive rate between 1996 and 2002, from 109,732 to 134,005. Meath suffered significant decline between 1861 and 1901, almost halving (110,373 to 67,497); it stabilised between 1901 and 1971 (67,497 to 71,729); and there was a substantial increase between 1971 and 1981 to 95,419. This is due primarily to economic factors, with the return of residents to live in the county, and also an echo effect of the 1970s baby boom. The census of 2011 gives a figure of 184,135, including a dramatic increase in inward migration to the county, much of it from neighbouring Dublin and Drogheda.

Bectives win wasn't enough to keep them totally safe owing to Nobbers big win over already relegated Michaels who go straight down with Meath Hill. Kilmainham completed their escape act leaving Longwood and Dunsany, despite their win over Blackhall facing the drop while as Div4 has been wrapped up for a while by Moylagh & Clann with Kilmainhamwood's win over Slane being the other key result. Walterstown and Drumbaragh couldn't catch Ballinlough even with both recording big wins with Walterstown now facing Bective in the promotion relegation playoff. Slightly less predictable was the Kells win over Summerhill with the two now having to meet in the semi-final to see who plays NOM. In Div1 the most notable result was probably Simonstown's slip up against Tones costing them a semi-final spot. The Tones result kept them safe and leaves Oldcastle in with a playoff to stay in Div1. Seneschalstown and Ballinabrackey go up with Pats win over St Colmcilles giving them the opportunity to face Oldcastle in the Div1 Div2 playoff. In Div3 Castletown lost their 100% record going down comprehensively to Ballinlough.
