Hill of Slane [1]
Hill of Slane [1]
The hill, in mythology is where St. Patrick lit a Paschal fire in AD 433 in defiance of the High King Laoire who forbid any other fires while a festival fire was burning on the Hill of Tara. The Hill of Slane stands 158 metres (518 ft) above the surrounding countryside and there are a number of historic sites located around the top of the hill. The ruins seen here are those of a friary church and college including a 19-metre (62 ft) high early gothic tower. The friary was abandoned in 1723.
