Donaghmore Round Tower

Donaghmore Round Tower

Situated just 10 minutes west of Slane village, the cemetry at Donaghmore contains the ruins of a medieval church and a fine example of an Irish round tower. St Patrick is said to have founded the first monastery at this site. The round tower is likely to have been built in the 10th or 11th century. The existing church ruins date back to the 15th century.
