About St. Mullins - Ecclesiastical ruins

St. Mullins - Ecclesiastical ruins in St. Mullins, Co. Carlow.

This important monastery was founded by St. Moling in the seventh century and it had close links with Ferns in Co. Wexford and Glendalough in Co. Wicklow. It has been a place of pilgrimage since medieval times and St.Moling's Well is still venerated for its powers of healing.

The ecclesiastical ruins are in the grounds of the Church of Ireland church and they include five churches and the remains of a round tower. The monastery probably contained several high crosses but only the upper portion and base of one solid-wheeled cross remains. The wheel shows a large figure of Christ.
