This is the remains of a 13th Century castle built by Norman conquerors just outside the monastic site. In addition to the monestry, the castle was destroyed during Elizabethan times by Cromwell.
Clonmacnoise (Cluain Mhic Nos) is an ancient monastic site on the banks of the Shannon near the centre of Ireland. It was founded in 545 AD by St. Ciaran, and became a major centre of religion, learning and trade. For seven centuries the monestry thrived and among the extensive ruins that have survived to this day are a cathedral, eight churches, two round towers, three high crosses and hundreds of Early Christian cross slabs.
