From a BBC News report, here, from 28 November 2006, we learn that the plans for a new interpretive center and signs at the Boyne Battlefield (in Ireland) seem to be coming along well. “The site of the iconic battle is being turned into a multi-million euro historical and interpretive facility by the Irish government.” (Interestingly, the BBC article spins this as something only “Orange” Protestants in the North would be interested in. They may be right.) Anyway, the improvements to the site should bring in lots of tourists.
The battle was fought between William of Orange and Catholic King James II in 1690. The Protestant Orange Order celebrate William’s victory on 12 July. Last year, the Irish government announced it would spend 15m euro to fund a museum and interpretive centre at the site.
A small visitors’ centre is already operating and attracted 25,000 visitors last year. Plans for the future include an extended centre with maps, models and graphics depicting the battle.
