This shrine to St Brigid is amazing... absolutely stunning location and lovely gardens, stream running through and places to sit and enjoy the peace. Well worth a visit.

The Hill of Faughart is a low hill north of Dundalk and south of the Moyry Pass. It is said that St Bridget was born here and there is a holy well dedicated to her on this hill. The tree beside the well is decorated and the well is still in use for devotees.

A number of legendary battles were said to have been fought on this hill, but in 1318 there was a very significant battle fought on the slopes nearby. In this battle, Edward Bruce, brother of King Robert the Bruce of Scotland, was killed.

Edward Bruce had invaded Ireland three years previously with the support of some Irish chieftains in the north. He was a Scottish prince and had hoped to be crowned king of Ireland. If he could expel the English from Ireland and unite the island under his rule, Edward and his brother planned to form an alliance that could contain English power. Unfortunately for Edward, his invasion coincided with a famine that encompassed all Europe and even though he won victories, there land was barren and his armies could not be fed. After three terrible years of famine, war, and suffering, the war came down to a battle fought near Faughart, where Edward was slain and the Scots defeated.

It is said that Edward’s body was quartered and sent to the four corners of Ireland, but it is also recorded that he was buried in the graveyard at the nearby Hill of Faughart. In the graveyard, near a yew tree by the ruins of the church can be seen a tomb purporting to be his grave.

There is a car park beside the graveyard where one can easily park. If one walks down the road heading west for a hundred metres or so, you can find the remains of a Norman motte. This can be accessed by entering the field by the gate, but be careful not to leave gates open and wear appropriate footwear if entering.

The Hill of Faughart is where the Brigid's Way walk begins. Visit Brigid's and it is possible to follow Brigid's way through Dundalk, Ardee, Hill of Slane, Hill of Tara, Moynalvey, Donadea, along the canal to Robertstown/Milltown, across the Curragh of Kildare and into Kildare town where there is a Brigid's Temple at the back of the church off the main square and then onto two Brigid's wells outside the town. Dont forget to stop Solas Bríde Centre in Kildare for rest and refreshments. The walk can be done in stages and in fine weather is absolutely delightful.
Rolling hills in Louth/ Meath to the flat land of the Curragh. You will find information on brigid's way.ie and solasbride.ie

This sacred Irish site includes supposedly the most sacred of Brigid's holy wells and the grave of King Edward the Bruce located in Faughart Cemetery, buried in the 1300's. The well is still an active pilgrimage site.

The views from here were spectacular overlooking Find all and all around.
Given its history the locals could do a bit more to provide information about the area.

C'est pas un endroit qui vous prendra longtemps à visiter, mais c'est très jolie ! La vue est belle d'un côté sur Dundalk et l'embouchure avec la mer, et de l'autre sur l'Irlande du nord !
Vous avez aussi un (vieux) cimetière, il paraît qu'un roi irlandais y est enterré car il est mort dans une bataille toute proche, mais impossible de savoir laquelle est sa tombe !

I’ve heard a few tales over the years about healing waters than run trough this part of the world and off course the stories about the hill itself. Well worth a stop if you like a quiet,peaceful place to sit and leave the rat race behind for a bit
