Kentstown is a village in County Meath in Ireland at the junction of the R153 and R150 regional roads.

The knight wears a tight-fitting jupon and has a dagger on his right hip. An inscription, in Latin, accompanies it: "Here lies Thomas de Tuite, Knight, once Lord of Kentstown, who died on 2nd June 1363". Demographics[edit sourceÂ | edit]
