Founded in 1216 by Cathal Crovderg O’Connor, Ballintubber Abbey is an important sacred Irish historical site which will celeberate its 800 year anniversary in 2016. Ballintubber Abbey was founded by King Cathal Crovdearg O’Conor – Cathal Mór of the wine-red hand. He was of the royal race of the O’Connors, King of Connacht and notable patrons of the arts. The Cross of Cong, one of our national treasures, was designed for his father, Turlach O’Connor. The Celtic Furrow is a unique visitor centre, which traces cultural, historical and spiritual roots in Ireland over 5,000 years. Nestled in the shadow of Ballintubber Abbey, many visitors overlook The Celtic Furrow as they hurry on to other museums and attractions in the area – what a pity. This is one experience that is truly not to be missed! Ideal for young and old alike, come along and enjoy a snapshot of our rich cultural heritage from the wonder of Neolithic times to the nostalgia of life in rural Ireland 50 years ago.
