Drumcliff Church, Round Tower & High Cross
This site is a monastic settlement, and also the burial place of the famous Irish poet W.B. Yeats.
Its importance dates from 574AD when St Colmcille founded a monastery here. The principle visible remains of the monument are the remains of Sligo’s only round tower, a high cross and a fragment of a plain high cross. The high cross dating from the 10th century has scenes from both the old and new Testaments.
