Donaghmore Church

The name Donaghmore means ‘Big Church’ and although the ruined church here is small by modern standards, it must have been an impressive structure when built in the 12th century.
This is a well-preserved example of an early medieval Romanesque church with a finely carved doorway and pitched roof.
It was dedicated to St. Farranan, who had a monastery here but went into exile and died in Walsort, Belgium in 982 AD.
Donaghmore is in a tranquil rural location about 5 miles north-east of Clonmel and west of Lisronagh
