This interesting 19th century church is located at the centre of the beautiful village of Thomastown in co. Kilkenny. The church was built in 1809 within the original structure of a 13th century ruined abbey. The grounds have interesting artifacts from history including a 14th century effigy of a Knight and even an ogham stone from the 5th century a.d. It has recently been carefully restored into a private residence (so no access is permitted without permission).
