The Cloister - Askeaton Friary by 

Askeaton Friary, County Limerick, Ireland is a Fracescon Friary founded in 1389. The church and other buildings are arranged around this central cloister where the monks walked, prayed and meditated. In 1579 during the Desmond rebellion, a government army under Sir Nicholas Malby attacked Askeaton. They destroyed the town and it’s crops and burnt the friary. Most of the monks escaped but several were caught and massacred by the soldiers. Some friars returned to Askeaton in 1627 and the community remained active until 1740.
