Ireland, Day 7 – Ceide Fields, Killala, Carrowmore, and Drumcliffe

Ceide Fields – Neolithic site discovered under bog lands – 5,000 years old. It is the largest Neolithic field wall site yet discovered and is a grid of parallel walls designed to enclose cattle.

Round Tower in Killala – all that is left from a church St. Patrick is said to have founded.

A dolman tomb at Carrowmore cemetery – a 5,000 year old burial ground


Drumcliffe is the site of a monastery founded by St. Columba in the 6th century that no longer remains. There is a 9th century cross. St. Columba’s Parish Church was Keats’ church and he is reported to be buried in the graveyard though that is questionable.
