The Yellow Steeple


The Yellow Steeple derives its name from the golden colour of the stonework at sunset. It is a tall tower that was originally part of an Augustinian Abbey, St Mary's. St. Mary's Abbey is a former Augustinian Abbey dedicated to the Blessed Virgin. The abbey was situated on the north bank of the River Boyne, opposite Trim Castle, on land given to St. Patrick who is often credited with founding the abbey.The abbey was a prominent pilgrimage site, famous for the healing power of its statue of the Virgin Mary, until its dissolution under Henry VIII during the Reformation.

The cathedral of St Peter & Paul

The Cathedral of St. Peter and Paul is one of the largest in the country. Taking into account that the remains of the Cathedral left behind today are gigantic in size, they are still  but a fraction of the size of the building that originally stood.
