Another point of interest we went to see while in Waterford County was the Ardmore Round Tower and Cathedral. The round tower and cathedral was built in the 12th century. The 30m tall tower sits on a base of flat rocks. It is approx. 5m in diameter at the base and tapers to approx. 3m at the top.
The Cathedral, which consists of a nave and chancel, was built in 3 phases. Located in the chancel are two of the three ogham stones that were originally found at this site.
