Balbriggan - the name of the town in Irish is either Baile Bricín, meaning Town of the Small Trout, or Baile Brigín, meaning Town of the Small Hills. The town was originally a small fishing village where King William of Orange and his army set up their camp after the Battle of the Boyne in 1690. In 1920 the town was burned and looted by the “Black and Tans” (a British Military force similar to the SS) after a Royal Irish Constable was murdered during the 1916-21 War of Independence.
