Drumcliffe Round Tower and High Cross
This site is a monastic settlement, and also the burial place of the famous Irish Poet W.B. Yeats. It’s importance dates from 574 AD when St Colmcille founded a monastery here. The remains of the monument are that of Sligo’s only round tower or bell tower, a high cross and a fragment of a plain high cross. Only 8.3m of the tower survives. The rest was demolished to build a bridge in the 18th and 19th centuries. The High Cross is an excellent example of a figure sculpted cross and dates from the 10th century. The east face also has scenes from the Old Testament.
