At Old Mellifont Abbey, the landscapes were breathtaking, absolutely stunning, the air sweet and invigorating. Old Mellifont Abbey was founded by Saint Malachy in 1142 C.E., and was Ireland’s first Cistercian Monastery. These were the same Cistercian Monks who attempted to destroy the kerbstones at Knowth. This is the building which once housed a lavabo, where the monks washed before both eating their meals and celebrating the Holy Eucharist.
