Clonmacnoise in Ireland’s Ancient East

The ancient monastic site of Clonmacnoise in Ireland’s Ancient East near Shannonbridge in Co Offaly was founded by St Ciaran circa 550 at the point where the great ridge called the Eiscir Riada meets the river Shannnon. The site which includes ruins of a cathedral, seven churches, 2 high crosses and the most extensive collection of early Christian grave slabs in western Europe still tells a tale in stone from the land of Saints and Scholars. This early Christian site is the final resting place of Rory O Connor the last High King of Ireland.

 

Ardmore Country House is just 15 miles (24K) drive from Clonmacnoise. Images courtesy of the OPW
