Navan is a county town of Meath in Leinster province in Ireland. It is located on the banks of the River Boyne and is a burgeoning town. Formerly it was a parliamentary borough and now it is the administrative town of the county. It is a great shopping venue and an incorporated market. Navan is situated on the road to Enniskillen. It is just 23 miles from Dublin and 7 miles from Trim. The overall population of this place is 5292 of which 4416 reside in town.

'Navan' means "the cave". It is one of the few names in the world that has a palindromic name. The town got its name 'Navan' after the national legislation enacted in the year 1971. The river Boyne meets river Backwater on the eastern side of this town over a humpback canal bridge. This ancient bridge is known as Poolbeg Bridge. In between 1759 and 1800, the canal was constructed but was abandoned in 1923. Navan is one of the first boroughs that were established in the palatinate of Meath by the English. The county Meath is named after the historic province and kingdom of Mide. It is the 14th largest of 32 counties in Ireland and the second largest of 12 counties of Leinster. County Meath, also known as Royal County treasures important historic monuments of Ireland. It was once the territory of the Christian kings of Ireland and some ancient Celtic and Pagan.
