Monasterboice High Crosses

Monasterboice High Crosses

The historic ruins of Monasterboice are of an early Christian settlement just 20 minutes from Slane Village.

It was founded in the late 5th century by Saint Buithe who died around 521, and was an important centre of religion and learning until the founding of nearby Mellifont Abbey in 1142.

The site houses two churches built in the 14th century or later and an earlier round tower, but it is most famous for its 10th century high crosses.
