The Monastic Ireland project team is hosting an International Conference, to be held 22nd – 25th August in Ennis, Co. Clare. Located in an area rich with the medieval buildings of the European monastic orders, the conference will balance sessions of papers from national and international experts with a variety of site visits, including the friaries at Adare, Ennis and Quin, the abbeys at Corcomroe and Killone, and the monastery at Kilmacduagh. This will hopefully stimulate a focused academic debate on the impact of monasticism in shaping the development of the physical environment across Europe between c.1100 and c.1700.
Registration options include individual day rates and attendance at our conference dinner, to be held in the Cloisters restaurant, Ennis, on Sunday 23rd August. (www.cloister.ie)
