Monasterboice is north of Drogheda in County Louth in the Republic of Ireland.  It is an early Christian settlement worthy of visiting

because of its spectacular high crosses from

the tenth century.  Monasterboice was founded in the late fifth century by St. Buite.

There is a round tower at Monasterboice that

is approximately 35 meters.

    The beautiful Muiredach High Cross

has biblical carvings of both the Old and NewTestaments of the Bible.

    Volunteers at Monasterboice conduct free

tours.  The volunteer guide who conducted

our tour was extremely interesting and


    Melifont Abbey is nearby so both

historic sites can be seen easily while

you are in the area.
