Visit to Great Connell May 2013

 Great Connell was the site of an Augustinian Priory dedicated to Our Lady and St. David, founded in 1202 by Myler Fitzhenry, a grandson of Henry I. The Abbey was a sister house of the monastery of Lathony in Wales, from whence monks came.  Great Connell emerged as one of the most important Anglo-Norman monasteries. Little now remains of the Abbey.

The pictures were taken during a visit to the Abbey, with a talk by Mr Con Manning on 28th May 2013
