Toureen Peakaun

Toureen Peakaun is a monastic site found in County Tipperary's beautiful Glen of Aherlow region. It features the remains of a rectangular church that dates from the 1100's.

In the 7th century, St Alban chose County Tipperary's tranquil Glen of Aherlow region as the location for a monastery.
The site, known as Toureen Peakaun, features the ruins of a rectangular, 12th century church.
Of note are the cross-slab fragments in the wall and remains of crosses between the church and gate.

Today, pilgrims continue to visit the church and the nearby holy well.
