Things to do: classes
Julianstown is a village in County Meath, Ireland. It is located near Drogheda on the R132 regional road not far from the Mosney Camp. In 1641, the battle of Julianstown was fought here during the Irish Rebellion of 1641Julianstown is situated on the River Nanny which flows into the sea at Laytown, about 3 km away. It has a strong community with both Roman Catholic and Church of Ireland churches, a National Primary school and a public house.OriginsJulianstown is significant in that it contains a bridge across the river Nanny on the road between Dublin and Belfast. One of the earliest mentions of Julianstown commemorates the Battle of Julianstown in 1641, which took place near the bridge. Indeed there is a commemorative plaque on the bridge erected by Billy Butlin in the 1960sJulianstown was the seat of the Moore family who lived in Julianstown house and occupied the land that now contains the townland of Julianstown West. Taylor and Skinner’s 1783 Road Map of Ireland refers to the Moore seat and also shows the Church of Ireland Church which still stands today. There is little evidence of any other inhabitation at that time. Taylor and Skinner also show the milestone in the centre of the village marking 20 Irish miles to Dublin. This milestone can still be seen today. There is further mention of William Moore in Lewis' Topographical Dictionary of Ireland (1837).
