What the town offers
This is Cavan Town
Located on Abbey Street, St. Mary’s Abbey was built by the O’Reillys in 1300. Only a three-storey bell tower and a graveyard from this important Franciscan friary remain. The friary was rebuilt many times after damage in wars and fire. A plaque commemorates Eoghan Roe O’Neill, commander of the Catholic forces in Ireland, interred here 1649. Many prominent members of the O’Reilly family are also buried here, including Myles ‘The Slasher’ and Primate Hugh. Visit www.cavanwalkinghistory.ie for more on the history of Cavan town.
