The Abbey was the second Cistercian monastery in Ireland and was founded after the success of the first, in Mellifont. It was one of the main offices of the monastery in the country, and its Abbot sat in the Parliament of the Pile. In addition, Hugh de Lacy (Lord of the County of Meath, fourth Baron Lacy, he died July 25, 1186) was buried there before he was transferred from Dublin.

The monastery was closed after the pressures of Henry VIII Tudor (king of England and Ireland, died on 28 January 1547) was converted to the street and handed over to officials of the civil service a reward for faithful work.

My travels.

As you may have noticed, nothing on this site has been added for some time. But no, I did not leave this project, I'm just busy with others. Currently I am building a website called Fshoq!, where I'm writing a travel blog, where you can find both my new and those old adventures. So if you are waiting for more of my texts or pictures, this is the place I think it is worth looking into. After I will make Fshoq! site more popular, I'm going to get back to Into the Shadows, as I'm having more and more explorations of abandoned places to describe. Meanwhile, see you later!
