Enfield, Co. Meath

Enfield (An Bóthar Buí in Irish) is a town in south County Meath, located between Kilcock and Kinnegad and sits very close to the County Meath - County Kildare border.

The history of Enfield is closely connected to the history of transport throughout south Meath. In the 1790's, maps denote the site as "A New Inn", later "The New Inn" and eventually, Innfield. This derives from a mail-coach inn on the 18th century Dublin to Mullingar coach route. The Royal Canal passed through Innfield also, and with the arrival of the Great Western Railway the name became anglicised to Enfield.

There is a newly created amenity park along with a small harbour and slipway at the Royal Canal on the western side of the town with coarse fishing, boating and walking.

Enfield also has its own micro-brewery, The Celtic Brew company which produces the award winning Finians Lager.

Enfield is also surrounded by some fine Golf courses, most notably, The Rathcore Golf And Country Club.
