Duiske Abbey, Graiguenamanagh, Kilkenny (1)
The former Cistercian monastery was founded in the C13 and subsequently became a victim of the Dissolution, and was suppressed in 1536 after which the abbey deteriorated, and gradually fell into ruin. It is now the Catholic parish church of the town of Graiguenamanagh. The abbey houses one of the finest medieval effigies in Ireland in the Baptistery of the south aisle. The carving is exceptionally fine of a cross-legged knight depicted in chain mail, about to unsheath his sword.
