Drumceatt Mound, also known as Mullagh Hill and Daisy Hill, just outside Limavady, is traditionally held to be the site where the great Convention of Drumceatt was held in AD 590.

It was attended by all the petty kings of Ireland and by King Aidan from the Irish colony, the Kingdom of Dalriada, Argyll in the Land of the Picts. St Columba and Aidan travelled from Iona to attend. Aidan received his independence from the High King of Ireland at the Convention and the small colony expanded to become Scotland.



From the A2 bypass at Limavady turn onto the B69 at the roundabout following the signs to the Roe Park Resort. Park at the hotel, walk around it to access a pathway at the rear of the building leading to a brick wall and up a moderate slope. Take a pathway to the right along the edge of the golf course to the Mullagh Hill (100 metres in height), the site of the Convention.
