St. Catherine's Oratory
Short Summary created by Fergalh  19 Oct 2020
At the top of the hill is St. Catherine's Oratory (known locally as the pepperpot"), which is a stone lighthouse built in the 14th century by Walter De Godeton. It is the second oldest, and only surviving, medieval lighthouse in the British Islands: only the Roman lighthouse at Dover is older. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/B5440/comment/11795/
