Irish Gothic Rosserk Friary, County Mayo


FullSizeRender

Built in the late Irish Gothic style, Rosserk Friary was founded in 1460 by a member of the Joyce family. This community was created for Third Order Franciscans… married men and women who chose to lead a Franciscan life, but due to their marital status could not join the First Order (friars) or the Second Order (nuns).

Located at the point where the River Moy meets Killala Bay, climbing around the friary offers the added bonus of a water view.
