Autumnal Equinox at St Colmcille's Church, Skreen, Co Meath.

A monastery named Achall, after the legendary Achall, daughter of one of the High Kings of Ireland who lived on the nearby Hill of Tara, was on this site at an earlier date. The shrine of Columba (Colm Cille) or maybe some of his relics, were said to have been brought here in the 10th century for safe keeping. The monastery was plundered at least six times by various raiders, but it continued to run even after the Norman Conquest of Ireland. The first Baron Skyrne, Adam De Feypo, founded this church for the Augustinians. The tower was added in the 15th century.
