Tullaherin Monastic site

The Tullaherin monastic site contains a 9th century round tower, an 11-13th century ruined church and two ogham stones. The round tower was once much taller and had a pointed cone roof which is now missing. The round tower was used probably used as a refuge from Viking or Gaelic Irish attack and as a bell tower. The site is reputed to be the site of the burial of St. Kieran. The monastic site is now protected by Duchas and the opgham stones are now housed in the Tullaherin Folk Museum established in 1981.
