Abstract

The County meath Heritage plan challenges all of us to become explorers and innovators in our own county. Our familiar Meath landscape is a splendid treasury of Ireland's heritage. Over the millennia Meath's natural enviroment has moulded our archaeology, architecture, languages, literatures, history, religions, folhlore, placenames, music, song, dance, art and craft. Striking continuites in human experience exist between our most distant ancestors in Meath and society of the present day. From the mysterious spiritual resonance of Bru na Boinne to Tara's symbolism of political sovereignty and freedom, Meath's heritage is at the heart of Irish national identity. This is a landscape which perpetually invites us on journeys of exploration: of geology, of history, of religion, of literature, of mythology and saga, of the elusive mysteries of creation itself.
