HISTORY OF THE NAUL VILLAGE
Situated right next to the Meath border, the village is known locally as The Naul – a anglicisation of its Irish name An Aill which means ‘The Cliff’. That refers to the steep banks of the Delvin river valley rather than the Irish Sea, which is about 15 minutes to the east.
Naul’s main attraction has to be the Séamus Ennis Arts Centre, which is located in the village and contributes a huge amount to the cultural life of the area. You’ll find concerts, theatre, trad sessions, cinema, comedy, talks, music tuition, craft workshops and art exhibitions.
