Slieve Russell Hotel

There is a modern stainless steel equatorial sundial in the garden of the Slieve Russell Hotel. The 250 mm diameter base plate is engraved with an eight cardinal point compass rose. The shadow cast by the rod gnomon onto the hour band indicates local solar time. The Latin motto 'Hora Quasi Umbra' translates as 'Time is but a shadow'.

The 300 acre ****Slieve Russell Hotel, Golf & Country Club is near Ballyconnell, Co. Cavan on the N87 road. Visit their website Slieve Russell Hotel
