Amenities in Baltinglass, Wicklow
The Abbey was founded in 1148 by Dermot Mc Murrough, King of Leinster for the Cistercian of monks. In 1228 it is recorded that there were thirty six monks and fifty lay brothers living there. The Abbey ceased to function in the mid sixteenth century but fragments of the church and traces of the cloister survive. The nave aisle has alternate squares and cylindrical piers, the bases and capitals of which are decorated with a range of designs. The bases of two Romanesque doorways and the well preserved sedilla in the presbytery are also of interest. Adjoining the abbey is a great pyramid style granite mausoleum, built in 1832 as a tomb for the Stratford family.
