Drumcliffe, Co. Sligo

More famous now as the final resting place of William Butler Yeats, whose grave is in the churchyard under a simple headstone with the inscription: 'Cast a cold eye on life, on death, Horsemen pass by'. Drumcliffe was an important monastic settlement founded by St. Colmcille in the sixth century. The remains of a Round Tower and the inscribed High Cross, which dates from the eleventh century are in what was the old monastic enclosure.
