The History of The Ward
If you travel the main Dublin to Derry road northwards towards Ashbourne, you will come across a small settlement of “The Ward” in North County Dublin. The Ward is one of the most northerly villages in Dublin, being situated just 1 1/2 miles from the Meath border and eight miles from Dublin City Centre. The road which you travel towards The Ward is almost exclusively the same route as the old highway to Derry, which was in existence for over 600 years. Along this route at various times travelled Oliver Cromwell, King James and King William Battle of the Boyne fame, Daniel O’Connell, Dean Swift, Wolfe Tone and Charles Stewart Parnell, when he was MP for Meath. All of them would have been familiar with and possibly sojourned at one of Dublin Oldest Coach Houses “The White House”
