Gothic rebuilding, carried for 6th Earl of Drogheda by Christopher Myers, who ‘in 1767, beautifully repaired the ancient abbey by enlarging the windows, placing a new roof, and recompartitioning the whole; preserving however the external walls and original form, except somewhat lenghtening the eastern front’. Formerly a convent, now a home for people with intellectual disabilities.
