Cemetery notes and/or description:
A small rural cemetery in County Louth. Monasterboice was founded in the late 5th century by St. Buite, a disciple of St. Patrick, who died around AD 521 and it was an important center of religion and learning until the founding of nearby Mellifont Abbey in 1142. The site houses the ruins of two churches built in the 14th century or later and an earlier round tower, but it is most famous for its 10th century high crosses. It is still an active local cemetery.
