If you are touring around the countryside, the hill and the Cemetery are very interesting. Ruins of a medievil church in the cemetery and the tomb of Edward the Bruce, King of Ireland and brother of Robert the Bruce (think Braveheart).

The views from here are amazing. The historic graveyard is well maintained and contains the burial place of Edward Bruce (died 1318), a holy well, and a prayer tree.

On a positive note I will return again over the coming weeks as I believe it is worth it. Unfortunately, very little effort has been made by the Louth Co Co to ensure the site is fitted with info boards. There is a bin which...More
