Interior view of Gothic arches and Romanesque columns of the medieval church ruins at Jerpoint Abbey in County Kilkenny, Ireland. An extensive library of imagery from Ireland is available in my galleries. This image is part of my Jerpoint Abbey Gallery.
Construction of Jerpoint Abbey was started by Donogh O'Donoghoe Mac Gilla Patraic, the King of Osraige, in 1180 AD. Jerpoint is famous for the number and variety of its stone carvings. The abbey flourished for several centuries until Henry VIII moved to dissolve all monasteries in Ireland. Today, Jerpoint is an Irish National Monument.
