Description:

Hore Abbey, found just outside of Cashel in County Tipperary was originally a Benedictine monastery.ᅠIn 1272, the archbishop of Cashel expelled the monks and Cistercians arrived from Mellifont Abbey.

Hore consisted of a cruciform Gothic church, tower, square cloister and living quarters.ᅠToday, the church and sections of the east range remain.ᅠThere are also fragments of the cloister arcade, which is of interest due to its unique positioning north of the abbey.
