An easy half day walk from Enfield to Longwood, Meath passing Hill of Down (Cnoc an Dúin) a townland in County Meath located on the Royal Canal at Albert Bridge. St. Columba, St. Brigid of Kildare and St. Patrick are, according to legend, supposed to be buried within the hill, though this is probably a confusion with the HIll of Down near Downpatrick in the province of Ulster.
