Starting in the heart of the medieval town at Trim Castle, the 3.7km Slí na Sláinte route passes along the outer line of the Porch Field ( Trim's medieval commons ) to Newtown and back into Trim along the Dublin road. The route includes most of the historic sites of Trim and Newtown, Trim. The pinnacle of Trim's past coincided with the early period of Norman power in Ireland. The ruins of the great castle and of the abbeys around it are all that now remains as testimony of this great era.
