The Cross of Cong (12c.) was commissioned by the king, Turlach O' Connor and was made in Roscommon in 1123. It is said to contain a relic from the cross of Christ. It was in the Cong Abbey and now in the National Museum of Ireland.

Ireland's Eye is a small island off the coast of Co. Dublin, directly north across Howth Harbour. The ruins of a Martello Tower and an 8c. church are the only signs of previous habitation. Its most spectacular feature is a huge freestanding rock called the Stack, which plays host to a large variety of seabirds.

"the three birthplaces of the first duke of Wellington," (U12.1459)

Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington (1769 - 1852) was an Irish-born British statesman, and a leading military and political figure of the 19c. who rose to prominence in the Napoleonic Wars. The precise date and place of his birth are not known. The date was end of April, or May 1st, 1769. The place was either Mornington House in Dublin (his family's social season residence in the capital), or Dangan Castle in Co. Meath (his family seat). As a member of the Protestant British squirearchy ruling Ireland, Wellington was touchy about his Irish origins. An enthusiastic Gael once commended him as a famous Irishman and he replied "A man can be born in a stable, and yet not be an animal." Hence, I think, the 3 birthplaces.
