Drumcliffe High Cross and Round Tower

Sites d'intérêt

St. Colmcille founded a monastery here about 575 on lands given by King Aedh Ainmire. Not far away, at Culderimne, the saint had been heavily involved in a battle in 561 in a dispute over the ownership of a book! The monastery seems to have been well known from the 9th to the 16th century, and was plundered by Maelseachlain O'Rourke in 1187. It was plundered again in 1267 and 1315, and the last known abbot died in 1503. The Church of Ireland church stands on the site of an older church of which nothing remains, and in front of this church the poet W.B. Yeats lies buried. Beside the road is the stump of a Round Tower which was struck by lightning in 1396. Tradition says that it will ultimately fall on the wisest man who passes it (so, if it falls on you, your wisdom will have been recognised - but too late!) To the right of the path leading from the road to the Church of Ireland church is a High Cross, consisting of what were two separate parts originally.

Nestled between Knocknarea mountain and Union forest, 3 km from Sligo city (pop.25,000), on the Atlantic coast of Ireland sits Carrowmore, site of one of the oldest collections of Megalithic tombs and burial chambers, some dating to 3500 B.C. This area is said to be the first site settled by man in Ireland.This beautiful corner of Ireland is not only home to prehistoric tombs but also to Irelands foremost equestrian facility,Sligo Riding Centre.It’s success and popularity among guests and local riders alike is due to it’s excellent facilities, sympathic instructors, safe and well trained horses, friendly staff, but mainly to it’s beautiful and diverse riding terrain. From the endless Atlantic beaches for galloping to the mountains and pine forests for gentle hacking, this truly is the horsemans paradise.

Que vous évoque le paysage de cette ville : Sligo ?

Most beautiful county in Ireland, not at all discovered or promoted by Bord Failte over the years but visitors always tell me they found it to be the most beautiful

There is a wide variation of shops and small cafe's. Easy parking and near shops also not expensive.

The wonderful artifacts from its history and the mementos from the Yeats family

Plenty of individual shops, different from the main high streets.

Lovely walks all around ,so fresh. Scenery is breathtaking.

Dolmen de Carrowmore dans son cairn.

a few more rest seating areas
