View of the ruins of Dunbroby Abbey in County Wexford, Ireland. This Abbey was founded in the 12th century by Hervey de Montmarisco and is thought to be the largest Cistercian church in Ireland. The Abbey was 60 ft long and had aisles on both sides of the Nave, it also had two large transcripts and each of these had three chapels. The west and south sides of the cloister were bounded by a high wall with few openings. In the 16th century the Abbey was converted into a mansion house by Sir Osborne Etchington, but it later fell into disrepair.
