History abounds on this hill
by Fergalh  20 May 2021
For many of us travelling in or around Kells you can't miss this prominent feature, which can even be seen from the Hill of Ward, Tara Hill and Sliabh na Callaigh. When in Kells follow the signposts along a narrow road north of the town up a hill to the car park. Despite the summit being a short distance from the car park there is a lot to see and do here. So what to see here, well in no particular order there was a the Ring fort here from the Bronze Age. There is also the paupers grave from the Famine marked with a large Celtic cross. The main thing to see is of course Ireland's only inland lighthouse built in 1791 which is around 30 metres high. This is a Doric column is closed at present due to Covid restrictions but when open the 164 steps to the top gives great views from the top even as far as the Mourne Mountain on a clear day. This Hill was also visited by Robert the Bruce and Queen Maebh on her way to steal the brown bull of Cooley. And if that was not enough there is even a trig Pillar !
