Monasterboice, Co. Louth.


St. Buithin’s Monastery
You have several High Crosses to choose from at this monastic site, but you will have no difficulty picking out the best one….Muiredach’s Cross

Not a sheela but enjoy the panels and try to identify Adam & Eve, Moses striking the rock, Doubting Thomas and the Flight into Egypt.

Monasterboice went into decline when the Cistercians founded Mellifont a few kilometres away.
