The modern Church of Ireland All Saints' church and its graveyard. The bullaun stone can be seen before the family grave in the centre of the photo.


This small bullaun stone is allegedly all that remains of an Augustinian Abbey founded at this site in 1151 and still in use in 1549.
It can be seen at the entrance of the graveyard of the more modern Church of Ireland All Saints' church south of Tullow, just off the N81.
The stone has an outer diameter of about 65 centimetres, the hollow in the centre has a diameter of 26 centimetres.
In the graveyard there are some fine grave markers.

In the area there should be a holy well too, but we were unable to locate it.
