Timoleague, Co. Cork

Timoleague (Irish: Tigh Molaige) is a picturesque village in County Cork, located near Courtmacsherry. Clonakilty is to the west of the village.

Timoleague Abbey was one of the largest and most important of the religious houses in Ireland. It was founded by one of the MacCarthys for the Franciscans in 1240, on the site already associated with St. Molaga - hence the name Timoleague, i.e. Tigh Molaga or the House of Molaga.

The ruins of Ballymore Castle nearby has exotic gardens that are open to the public and include picnic areas and a children's playground.
