Skreen/Skryne (from An Scrin – The Shrine) Church, Co Meath, Ireland
This is the ruin of the 15th century church built on the site of an earlier monastery.
In 875 the relics of St Colmcille were brought here for safe keeping but the shrine was robbed in 1027 (later recovered)
The church is the ruin that’s visible in the east from the Hill of Tara
