Laytown, Mouth of the River Nanny, Meath, Ireland

River Nanny

Laytown sits on the mouth of the River Nanny, a tidal estuary where mullet, trout, eels, gobies and flounder can be caught – but no salmon.

 According to local folklore, Saint Patrick banished all the salmon from the river.

 By an old schoolhouse overlooking the river there is a spring known as St Patrick’s Well.
