Buttevant Franciscan FriaryButtevant Cork - Ireland South
The remains of the Buttevant Franciscan Friary are situated 15 minutes north of Mallow in County Cork. The 13th-century ecclesiastical site was founded by David Oge Barry and dedicated to Thomas Becket. After the abbey was dissolved, it was taken over by the Barrys. Still, the friars returned in 1609 and remained intermittently until 1783. Among the remains of the settlement, visitors will find a nave-and-choir church, several lancet windows, tomb niches, a double crypt and single piscina.
