Navan began in the 1100s after the Normans invaded Ireland. Lord Hugh de Lacy awarded the Barony of Navan to his knight, Jocelyn de Angulo, who built a fort and grew a settlement. Today the town is known for having Europe’s largest lead and zinc mine, and also as the childhood of home Brosnan, Pierce Brosnan. Walk about the beautiful town and soak its charming artwork, like the Sniomh sculpture, or the The Bull in Market square, before stopping in at one of Navan’s great music venues, like FortyOne.
