Slane, County Meath
Built in 1766 ,the Mill is said to be the oldest and finest in Ireland. Built with incredible attention to detail - all handcut stone and hand carved gibsanian surrounds, its stonework is as fine as that of a parliment building never mind an industrial Mill.   In its day, the mill was the largest in Ireland.  It was originally powered by two horizontal water wheels underneeth. High tides & high rainfall called staff to work when the Millrace was full with water. the mill is one of the finest examples of Georgian Industrial Architecture in Ireland

It is said that Saint Patrick came to the Hill of Slane early in his attempt to convert pagan Ireland to the light of Christianity. On the eve of the Christian feast of Easter, 433 A.D. St. Patrick lit a bonfire upon the Hill of Slane. No one was supposed to light a fire until the Druids had lit theirs. St Patrick was captured on the Hill of Slane and taken to the pagan King Laoghaire. During the journey Saint Patrick and his followers recited a prayer. Saint Patrick managed to talk his way out of the crime and was granted permission by the King to preach Christianity.The ruins of a monastery are all that remain on the Hill of Slane.  There is a large statue of Saint Patrick at the front of the burial grounds, looking over the Boyne Valley.

The light in the sky that evening was spectacular, and provided a very dramatic backdrop to the monastery ruins at the top of the hill here.  A few more photos from that evening here
