“Heritage at the Heart of the Boyne Valley”

Located in the house where he grew up, the Francis Ledwidge Museum celebrates the life of the Meath poet who was killed in July 1917 while serving with the British Army in Ypres in World War I.

The museum is a perfect example of a 19th-century farm labourer’s cottage and houses examples of the poet’s works, artefacts from World War I and other artefacts from the period.
