Celtic Highlights

 These ruins dated back to the 12th Century and apparently, the movie Braveheart was filmed here. The name, Trim, came from the Gaelic, Baila Atha Traim, meaning "The place or crossing of the elder tree.

Amazing to walk around these ruins and we tried to imagine what life must have been like way back when.


The castle wasn't open when we arrived so we weren't able to get much history or detail. One could look into the ruins and imagine that x building or space was where storage occurred, or where the weapons were kept.
  This carved piece of oak is called, "A Hunger for Knowledge." Beautifully aged piece of art.
