Inhabited from an early era, many relics of the Bronze Age have been unearthed throughout the county. It was later the centre and heartland of the kingdom of Oriel, and an ancient monument at Donaghmoyne is reputed to have been the residence of the Kings of Oriel.
The arrival of Christianity saw St. Patrick visit several locations in the county, while his ‘right-hand man’ – St. Macartan became patron of the diocese of which County Monaghan forms approximately one half. Tiernach of Clones and Dympna of Tydavnet later became two of Ireland’s best known saints.
In the Monaghan of today you will discover a county with strong links to its historical past and many towns and villages retain and portray a rich history and tradition.
