Hill of Down: Co Meath

hill of down

I doubt that many people plan to visit this lovely spot on the Royal Canal but when I drove over the bridge I just had to pull up short and have a look at the canal and the tow path. There is not much here; just a pub and post office and the bridge leaps over the railway line and canal. St. Columba, St Patrick and St Brigid are supposed to be buried in the hill but apparently there is another Hill of Down near Downpatrick in Ulster.
