A Sense of Place, Jerpoint Abbey

I intend to post a more detailed article about Jerpoint abbey soon, however here I just want to post some Images that I hope give you a feeling for this wonderful Cistercian abbey founded in the second half of the 12th century. The abbey is located near Thomastown, county Kilkenny.

For the moment if you would like more details on the abbey please following the link above.

      Yes There is a full visitors center that shows you how it did look, I have some pic’s I will post next time, but it was just amazing and surrounded by a full village, no longer any evidence of this but it was big !

      Thank you Norma πŸ™‚
