Mass Rock Sites of:
Ardaghy (Pouillawee) Mass Rock, Omeath
There is a Mass Rock near Omeath, County Louth. There is a mass held there once a year.
A cross is still visible on the Pouillawee (Poill a’Bhuí) Mass Rock in Ardaghy, Omeath and Mass is celebrated at the site on an annual basis.
Other more recent history in the area includes the mass rock in Ardaghy. This exists from the penal times when priests under the death penalty had to say their daily mass from a rock in the open air.
This is a reminder of the religious hardship which affected our forefathers. A cross can still be seen on this mass rock.”
The area is rural. It is by the side of the road so access is easy.
