Roscrea

For a town of its modest size, Roscrea is home to a great deal of ancient ruins, medieval churches, and rich history.

Roscrea is a town in County Tipperary, Ireland. The town is one of the oldest in Ireland which developed around the ancient monastery of St Cronan, parts of which remain preserved today. Roscrea is a designated Irish Heritage Town due to the extent of important historical buildings that are preserved in the town. Amongst the most notable buildings are the 13th Century Castle and Damer House. Within the town are the remains of an ancient Romanesque doorway and gable-end of St Cronan's church. Also of interest in the town are the remains of the 15th century Franciscan Friary and Monaincha and Sean Ross Abbeys.
