Lovely round tower in a peaceful graveyard just off the N51. Plenty of parking available and with it being within a graveyard free to enter. Make sure you pay your respects to the unnamed croppy on your way through.

Nice place to visit for a bit of local history. One or two information plaques dotted about explaining what the sites are and there is ample car parking. Bear in mind that this is a cemetery also, so please visit with respect.

During a recent trip to Co Meath we discovered this charming little graveyard with the remains of a church and an exquisite round tower. A peaceful place and well worth a short visit.

This little graveyard is worth the stop along Ireland's Ancient East, as the round tower is perfectly preserved.
