St Patrick’s name is connected with this monastery. There is an unusual Cross, sometimes called Cooly’s Cross, at the entrance to the site. It has a pierced hole in the middle, an indication that it may be a reused pagan slab. There are the remains of 2 churches and a very interesting ‘skull house’, which may possibly be a tomb-shrine but the site was too overgrown to find cross slabs.
