The ruins of the Priory and the burial ground at Mothel seen from the south.


An early monastery was founded here in the 6th century by St. Brogan, but nothing of it survives today.

The Augustinian Canon regulars came to Mothel in 1140 and refounded the monastery. But what we see today are the remains of a building dating from the 13th century.
The Priory was dissolved in 1540, under king Henry VIII.

Part of the south wall stands to full height with two widely splayed windows. A few metres away stands a portion of the west (255°) wall of this church, with no other details.
The church had a south-southeast transept which now houses some important and nice fragments of the church, among them some corbels and windows jambs, and a portions a tomb carved around 1500.

To the north there's the enclosed burial plot for the Power family.
Some other interesting grave markers can be seen in the graveyard to the southeast of the church.
