Just outside of Dublin lies the town of Naas. It is a strange-sounding town, almost as if it were more at home in the Netherlands. Its name comes from several different sources Nás na Ríogh, which means ‘The meeting of Kings’ or ‘Nás Laighean’, which means the meeting place of Leinster men. Either way, the name Naas certainly relates to a meeting place of some kind and with significant people at that. If you visit this incredible place, you will undoubtedly want to take plenty of commemorative photos of the visit on your phone. However, you’ll want to ensure that everything you take is perfect, and an updated phone is the only way to do that. So going on Vodafone Naas via kingcommunications.ie/vodafone-stores-near-me/naas/ is a great way to make sure that you do.
The town has been attacked and raided down through the years, mostly it seems, by the O’Toole and O’Byrne clans. It was rich pickings for these clans as the town was renowned for its wealth and influence. The main reason for this was the extensive Norman Castle that was built to try and control the land around it. Given its strategic position, this was true in 1798 when the first Irish rebellion was. The town would hold out against the rebels, ultimately bringing about its demise as the town was an essential goal in the campaign.
The town was also the head of the Irish Government at times. There were times when it was almost the capital over Dublin.
