Sligo Abbey

Sligo Abbey is a Dominican Friary that was founded in 1253 by Maurice FitzGerald. It was destroyed in 1414 by a fire, ravaged during the Tyrone War in 1595 and once more in 1641 during the Ulster Uprising.

The friars moved out in the 18th century, but Lord Palmerston restored the Abbey in the 1850s. The site contains a great wealth of carvings including Gothic and Renaissance tomb sculpture, well preserved cloister and the only sculptured 15th century high altar to survive in any Irish monastic church.
