THE ISSUE OF whether the Book of Kells should be relocated to Meath provoked much debate on last night’s Vincent Browne show – as local Ronnie McGrane argued for the manuscript to be returned to the county (he was dressed as a monk throughout the exchange with Vincent – which some viewers found very entertaining).

The move, McGrane argued, would be a boon to tourism in Kells – where it was housed for centuries.

The book – which dates from around 800AD, and is on display in Trinity College – regularly features in the list of top ten Irish visitor attactions. It was moved to Dublin for safekeeping in the 1650s, after Cromwell’s forces arrived in Kells.
