Navan is the county town or administrative capital of County Meath.
Navan is also the name of a Local Electoral Area which includes the
town and adjacent parts of the county. The total population of
Navan Electoral Area was 38,891 in 2006.
Tara Mine, Europe's largest lead and zinc mine is located in Navan.
The town traditionally was famous for carpets (Navan Carpets closed
in 2003) and for a thriving furniture industry (Beechmount Home
Park). Both are now in decline, or have ceased, as a result of the
move away from manufacture to cheaper locations like Eastern
Europe. Nevertheless, Navan has rapidly expanded with the Celtic
Tiger to become a large dormitory town due to its proximity to
The town has a freight only railway line. Navan was a railway
crossroads, with the GNR(I) line from Drogheda to Oldcastle and the
MGWR line from Kingscourt to Clonsilla (on the Dublin to Sligo
line) passing through the town, connecting at Navan Junction.
The GNR(I) line from Navan to Oldcastle and the MGWR line from
Clonsilla to Navan closed in 1963, leaving the lines from Drogheda
to Navan and Navan to Kingscourt in place. A spur to Tara Mines on
the Navan to Oldcastle trackbed was reinstated in 1977.
As of 2005 the railway is solely used by Iarnród Éireann to bring
freight from the local lead and zinc mine, Tara Mines, to Dublin
Port. The line from Kingscourt was used for transport of gypsum
until quite recently but now this line is unused.
A campaign to have the Clonsilla to Navan line reopened, seeks a
commuter service to Dublin, initially via the existing Drogheda
line, and then directly through reopening the direct line to Dublin
via Dunboyne. The Transport 21 plan envisaged the reopening of
Clonsilla services happening in two stages, initially to a park and
ride off the M3 at Pace by 2009 and later extending to Navan by
2015. The first stage of the project as far as Pace, Co Meath was
completed in 2010, and a daily commuter service to Dublin Docklands
Station commenced on 2 September 2010. The second stage of the rail
link to Navan has been postponed indefinitely as a consequence of
cutbacks in the state's infrastructural spend announced in July
