Monasterboice Cross

Founded in the late 5th century by Saint Buithe, just north of Drogheda in County Louth lie the ruins of Monasterboice which was an early christian settlement.
It consists of a round tower that is about 35-metres tall, and is in very good condition, although it is not possible to go inside.

There is also the 5.5-metre Muiredach’s High Cross is regarded as the finest high cross in the whole of Ireland. It is named after an abbot, Muiredach mac Domhnaill, who died in 923.
