The ruins of the abbey from the south. In the graveyard there's an identical crucifix as in the Cahir abbey graveyard.


This small church is in ruin and overgrown, and lies along a narrow lane lost in the countryside south of Ardfinnan.
It was a Carmelite Friary built around 1315 and it was probably dissolved in the 1540's.
It has a long chancel with a wonderful two-light window, a nave and a central tower. A south transept might be a later addition. Its window is decorated with two beautiful carved heads, one on each jamb. The one on the left-hand side jamb is of a bearded man, the other one shows a sad person flanked by a floreal carving.
The building is about 18 metres long and 6 metres wide. It's aligned to east-southeast (105°).
Looking upwards under the tower the holes for the bell ropes are still visible.
