We have come a very long way from those early days when the first Belgian monks arrived here back in 1927.
What has been achieved is thanks – in no small measure – to the kindness and generosity of so many. The monastic community are profoundly grateful for all the blessings we have received and for this we give thanks to God.
We are very gratful that you might be considering supporting one of our monastery funds. If you have questions or would like to discuss any aspect of your potential support in more detail, please do contact our Director of Development – James Ó Murthuile on 061-621093 or email email@example.com – he will be happy to help.
With every blessing,
Abbot Brendan Coffey OSB
