Cemetery notes and/or description:
Originally a Franciscan abbey built in 1474, its ruins are now used as a cemetery. It was at this abbey that four scholarly monks, Michael O'Clery and his three assistants, wrote the "Annals of the Kingdom of Ireland" between 1630 and 1636. The document became known as the "Annals of the Four Masters" leading to the common reference to the abbey as the Abbey of the Four Masters.

The abbey ruins and graveyard sit at the edge of the Donegal Town harbour at the mouth of the Eske River. The ruins are maintained by the Ireland Office of Public Works.
