Donaghmore

This is the site of a very early Christian settlement, reputed to have been founded by St. Patrick, who placed his disciple, Cassán, in charge.

The settlement included the church and a fine round tower, which was probably built sometime in the 10th century and is still in good condition. On the doorway sculptured in high relief on the keystone of the arch is a figure of the Crucified Saviour, and on each side of the architrave, a human head.
