The Ruins Of Rathmullan Priory by 


The ivy clad ruins of Rathmullan Priory built circa 1508 by Rory Mac Sweeney Fanad and presented to Carmelite Friar Mac Sweeny of Connacht in 1516. It was plundered by George Bingham in 1595 and used as barracks by Ralph Bingly in 1601. In 1618 the nave (western portion) was adapted as a castle and used as a residence by Bishop Knox. Its garrison repulsed the Jacobite rebellion in 1689. The chancel (eastern end) of the church was used as a parish church until it was abandoned in 1814.
There is a very interesting graveyard attached to the Priory, with the gravestones standing on the shores of Lough Swilly in Co Donegal, Ireland.

    Very nice image Joyce and some great history there Joyce…….. I love history…… one thing that I started to appreciate at an older age……. older age I said…. not old age…….. big difference there……. 2 nights ago it felt like 29………..the day after it felt like 99 and counting………. don’t ask…….. just got back home late last night from a snowy and windy and freezing northern hell……. a little better here….. no rain (so far), and no snow (so far)…… the wind is howling this early dark morning…………. very suitable weather for a visit to the Ruins of Rathmullan Priory I’d say………. seems like an interesting place……. meet me by the entrance to Bishop Knox’s residence…………… I’ll be there in a jiffy………… just let me grab my big pot of coffee…………… from your “body aching all over” friend……….. Hany. P.S. Did I say nice image??? Nice image Joyce…….

  • Hello Hany…………………….how am I allowing myself to get so far behind with my thanks…………………a belated thanks my friend………………….well, you know that Rathmullan is on the list of places to visit in Ireland…………………there is a lovely long curved beach beside Lough Swilly to explore, and then we can indulge in some gooey things in Rathmullan House……………….I am off with my next thank you………………..it is raining cats and dogs here at the minute……………………..from your ‘heading off to Fermanagh in the morning’ friend………………….Joyce
