Ballintubber Abbey

Filed under: Historic Places,Ireland — John Maass @ 6:41 am

I’ve just returned from Ireland, and one of the sites I visited was this one, Ballintuber Abbey founded in 1216 by King Cathal O’Conor, in Co. Mayo.  It is the only church in Ireland still in daily use that was founded by an Irish king.  It was awesome, especially to pray at a spot where so many had before me for so long in the face of so much persecution and attacks.
