Read about our Ancient History

"The home of Saint Brigid."

Ardagh Hill

Bri Leith is identified as the prime location of the greatest Irish hero tales - the 'Wooing of Etain'. The more modern name Sliabh gCalraighe, means the hill of Calraighe - an ancient people who dwelt in the district at the dawn of history. Ancient tales, imaginary or not, indicate that Bri Leith was a place of renown.

Historians agree that the first seeds of the Christian religion in the diocese were sown on the hill of Ardagh. The indications are that St. Patrick arrived in Ardagh about 435. The king of Teffia received him with respect and he secured a site for his church, over which he placed his nephew St. Mel as bishop.
