SCENES from IRELAND

Duiske Abbey is a National Monument of Ireland, it is also known as Graiguenamanagh Abbey. Duiske Abbey is a 13th-century Cistercian monastery situated in Graiguenamanagh, County Kilkenny in Ireland.

Duiske Abbey was founded by the Anglo-Norman knight William Marshall in 1204.

Duiske Abbey was one of the first, largest and perhaps the finest of the thirty-four medieval Cistercian monasteries in Ireland.

 Duiske Abbey now functions as the parish church of Graiguenamanagh town and dominates the town centre overlooking the River Barrow.

Duiske Abbey is beautifully located in the valley of the river Barrow, on a site between the main river and the Duiske tributary.

The abbey derives its name from the Douskey River Irish: An Dubhuisce, meaning "Black Water".
