Rosserk Friary
A church on this site is mentioned in a list dated 1198 and Petty marked it on his map of Mayo in the mid-sixteenth century. The abbey was built sometime before 1441 for the Friars of the Franciscan Third Order Regular. It was a thriving community until the Reformation. The abbey was destroyed in the 1590s by Queen Elizabeth's governor of Connacht, Sir Richard Bingham.
