Murrisk Abbey

Ireland»Connacht»Murrisk Abbey

Murrisk Abbey: The ruins consist of an L-shaped building representing the long and narrow church, the sacristy and the chapter room with overhead dormitory. There is a beautiful east window with carved human heads on the wall outside. The south wall is crowned with unusual battlements and a number of trefoil and ogee-headed windows. There was a belfry tower at the west end of the church, inserted after the church itself was completed. However, the church outlived its new addition; all that survives of this tower now is a ribbed vault.
