History

Holycross Abbey, situated about four and a half miles from Thurles in Co. Tipperary, is located in a magnificent setting on the banks of the River Suir.

It is a fantastically situated monastery dating back to the early 12th century. It was built by Donal Mór O' Brien for the Order of Tiron and takes its name from the relic of the True Cross. Before the close of the 12th century, it was passed on to the Cistercians. It became a place of pilgrimage for people from all over the country.

The church has many interesting features including a variety of fascinating windows, mural paintings and many fine carvings.

I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for arranging such a wonderful trip. You are just the best. When I show my pictures "everyone" wants to visit Ireland.
