Day 314

9 Nov

Beautiful sunset over Ardboe Cross, County Tyrone. The name Ardboe comes from ‘Arb Boe’ meaning ‘hill of the cow.’ Apparently it comes from an old folk tale about how the monastery of Ardboe was built from the milk of a magic cow that came out of Lough Neagh. The cross is a national monument dating from the tenth century. It was the first High Cross built in Ulster.

      Oops! I blame the internet; that’s where I read it was traditionally referred to as Arb Boe.
