Black Abbey

Founded in 1225 this is one of Ireland’s oldest churches and is still in use by the Dominicans by whom it was founded.

Look out for the excellent examples of modern and antique stained glass windows, the wooden roof and the stonework.

Nearby on Abbey St is the last existing remnant of the entrance gate in the medieval city walls.
