The Ashbourne Historical Society, with financial support and expert advice from Meath Library Services, is engaged in committing the Story of Ashbourne to paper, for the delectation and enlightenment of present and future generations. Approximately 15 citizens are engaged in the effort, which has been in train now for over six months.
Do not expect a chronological history of our Town, though the history will indeed be there. Rather we will tell the story, but intersperse it with commentary, biography, photographic records and above all personal stories of residents, natives and those new neighbours who have chosen to make Ashbourne their home.
Watch this space for news on the project as it wends its way from concept to realisation.
