There’s a  beautiful Capuchin Friary  right near my apartment in Dublin. The wooden ceiling is spectacular.  The photos I have on hand right now don’t do the place justice, so I’ve included two that I found on line as well.

Burrishole “Abbey”

It turns out Burrishole Abbey was never actually an abbey.  Although some people know it by that name, the more proper term is Burrishoole Friary.

Glen brought us there in September, when I expressed interest in seeing ruins.  It’s located just outside of Newport, which is where he favorite B&B, Seapoint House, is located.  (Carol took such great care of us there!)

If you have family there, you can even check the Find a Grave website to locate their internment location.
