Kentstown (Irish: Baile an Cheantaigh) is a village in County Meath in Ireland at the junction of the R153 and R150 regional roads. The ruins of the medieval church can be found in Danestown, Kentstown, while in the present St. Mary's Parish Church (Church of Ireland) an effigy in the shape of a medieval Norman knight is carved on a slab. 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".
In 2006 the village had a population of 912, a rise from the 355 it had in 2002.
