Monastic Way

Offaly the Monastic County

The concept of the “Monastic Way” is a collection of Early Christian monastic sites in County Offaly (6th century) and other related sites of interest.
Brief details are included here together with illustrations.

The original idea of the "Monastic Way", covering a wider geographic area, can be viewed on www.monasticway.com.

A beautifully illustrated book, of coffee table proportions, covering most of the significant sites in the county can be purchased in local shops and, on line, in major book websites. - "Sacred Landscapes - From Croghan Hill to Clonmacnoise" by Caimin O'Brien. It is also on the shelves of libraries within the county.
