St Mary’s Carmelite Abbey, just off the N17 outside Claremorris, thought to have been founded in 1288 with the help of the Prendergasts of Brize Castle, lies in ruins today but still bears testament to the monks and priests who prayed and studied here for centuries. The ruins include the remains of the original 13th century Carmelite chapel and an altar still stands in what appears to have been an often reconstructed Penal Chapel.
Graves can be found within the ruins of the Chapel and surrounding graveyard and there are still some interments as late as 2016.
