Conyngham of Co. Meath
Few Irish towns have quite such a beautiful lead in as the estate village of Slane, now one of the most “driven-thru” towns on the main Dublin – Navan Road. As you round the corner from the Dublin Road, Slane rises up in front of you on the opposite banks of the River Boyne. It is said that the road from Dublin to Slane was built for the visit of King George IV to Slane in the early 1820s.
Because of the huge ‘rock’ concerts Slane has become a household word in Ireland and further afield as has the name of Lord Henry Mount Charles, the eldest son of the present Conyngham owner of the Castle and estate the 7th Marquess Conyngham.
