Clonmacnoise: A Little History

Clonmacnoise is an early monastic settlement located in the heart of Ireland. It was the setting of a thriving and often turbulent history and a center for religion and trade. This Medieval site is now in ruins but still boasts a fine round tower, many Celtic crosses, Celtic and Romanesque architecture, and a small church still in use.

The Dragonas fiddle piece “Dance at Clonmacnoise” takes its name from this amazing Irish site.
