1469 – Burrishoole Abbey, Newport, Co. Mayo



Burrishoole Abbey was founded in 1469 by Sir Richard De Burgo. Set against the tranquil backdrop of Clew Bay, this Dominican Abbey was active for three hundred years and featured prominently in the troubled history of Burrishoole. The collapse of its roof in 1793 hastened its demise.
