  • Information

    The Murrisk Augustinian Friary was founded on lands granted by Thady O’Malley in 1457 and the Friary is built on the site reputed to be that of the original church founded by St. Patrick. The Friary continued until 1577 despite being suppressed at the reformation, when the friars were driven out in common with the other Augsutinian Friaries.

    Today you just have the ruins of a church with one central aisle (with battlemented walls and a fine east window), and the east wing of the Friary buildings.
