1224 – Dominican Friary, Drogheda, Co. Louth



The Magdalene Tower was the belfry tower of the once extensive Dominican Friary founded here about 1224 by Lucas de Netterville, Archbishop of Armagh.

It springs from a fine Gothic Arch, above which there are two further storeys connected by a spiral staircase.
