These hilltop ruins consist of a former Franciscan Monastery and an early 16th century tower house. The monastery was dissolved in around 1540 by Henry VIII. The present ruins include the medieval church with a well preserved early gothic tower situated inside the walled enclosure, and the Franciscan College Ruins built on the site of the early monastery established by St Erc. (Hill of Slane, County Meath, Ireland)
