Surveying Kilcrea

The Monastic Ireland Project and the Discovery Programme carried out a survey of the Franciscan friary and castle of Kilcrea, Co. Cork. 

Pictured: Dr Anne-Julie Lafaye, Dr Małgorzata D’Aughton, both work on the IRC-funded Monastic Ireland Project pictured together with Dr Ger Dowling, Discovery Programme.

‌The survey conduced last week, 14-18 September 2015, is part of the Monastic Ireland’s investigation into the role played by monasticism in Ireland from the twelfth-century to the Dissolution. Dr Małgorzata Krasnodębska-D’Aughton, UCC School of History and Dr Anne-Julie Lafaye, work on the Monastic Ireland’s module that deals with the arrival and spread of the mendicant orders in Ireland and their interface with local politics and social provision. We examine the macro landscape of mendicant foundations both in their rural and urban context as well as the micro landscape of internal spaces in mendicant foundations.
