Milestone on the Boyne Navigation - Christmas Day 2010
Milestone on the Boyne Navigation - Christmas Day 2010
Located about a mile (5280 feet) from the next milestone N8970 : Milestone on Boyne Navigation Canal, so we're not dealing with Irish miles (6720 feet), but four miles from where? Slane is 4.5 miles distant - perhaps their accuracy is a bit off.

Curious that this canal, completed in 1800, is marked in English miles, while the Dublin to Slane road, constructed some time later, has Irish miles - see here O1239 : Milestone in Finglas, Co. Dublin for my musings on its milestones.
