Layers of history are revealed on the guided tour of this friary (Abbey
is a misnomer as you'll discover). You can learn about the origins of Sligo Abbey,
and the use right up to recent times. Stories of the attacks and
eventual destruction of this place paint a picture of the complex and sad
history just under the surface of Sligo. Good to know the same lineage
of Friars is still active in the town.
Keep your eye out for interesting
details, stop and read some gravestones. Ask a lot of questions! The tour guides know quite a bit of history. And for what they don't know, it's worth the time to chat. This place is worth repeat visits,
you can learn something new every time.
