RITUAL AND ROYALTY AT UISNEACH, CO. WESTMEATH
Boasting a heady mix of ancient monuments, natural wonders, myth and royal associations, the Hill of Uisneach is one of Ireland’s most evocative ceremonial and assembly landscapes, with a history spanning five millennia. Renowned as the umbilical centre of Ireland and the meeting point of the ancient provinces, it is one of a group of six Irish ‘royal sites’ on the UNESCO World Heritage Site Tentative List, alongside Dún Ailinne (Co. Kildare), Rathcroghan
(Co. Roscommon), the Rock of Cashel (Co. Tipperary), Tara (Co. Meath) and Navan Fort (Co. Armagh). Described in this Heritage Guide by Roseanne Schot of the Royal Sites of Ireland Steering Group.
