Bettystown

Bettystown is a coastal resort situated on a short strip of coastline which is County Meath's only outlet to the sea. The name of the town comes from Baile an Bhiadhtaigh, which means Town of the Hospitaller. A magnificent sandy beach stretches 10km south of nearby Laytown to the mouth of the Boyne as Mornington. The eighth century Tara Brooch, one of the finest examples of the goldsmith's art in Early Christian Ireland, was found on the beach at Bettystown in 1850. It is now preserved in the National Monument in Dublin.
