View of White Abbey near Limerick in Ireland, also known as the Trinitarian Monastery. The church was built in 1230 by the Fitzgerald family for an order known as ‘The Trinnitarian Canons of the Order of the Redemption of Captives’. The church was originally dedicated to St. James. It was badly damaged during the reign of Henry VIII and in the 19th century what remained of the building- the tower, nave and choir- was incorporated into the Romasn Catholic parish church of the Holy Trinity.It is the only monastery of this order known to have survived in Ireland.
