Introducing Maynooth

Bustling Maynooth (Maigh Nuad) is dominated by the local campus of National University of Ireland (NUIM), whose students make up two-thirds of the inhabitants and bring a bit of life to this otherwise demure country town lined with stone-fronted houses and shops. Main St and Leinster St join and run east–west, while Parson St runs south to the canal and the train station (accessed via a couple of footbridges) and Straffan Rd runs south to the M4.
