MULTYFARNHAM FRIARY

Mbuailtibh Farannain

Multyfarnham Franciscan Friary was originally founded in 1268 and is dedicated to Mary, Mother of God, and to St. Francis of Assisi. The 700 year old Franciscan Friary includes extensive grounds.

The grounds of the friary are regularly sought out by people in search of solitude and an opportunity to pray. A prominent feature of the Friary Garden is the unique interpretation of the "Stations of the Cross". Fourteen life-size statues were commissioned by a previous Guardian of the Abbey, Fr. Camillus Courtney and designed by Neff Brothers of Cork City. These statues are nearly 100 years old, and were reputedly modeled on people living in the village at the time.
