The final lecture for 2018 promises to be something quite special. Historian and author Dr Breda Lynch who works for the OPW gives a lecture entitled Kells Priory - A Monastic Experience.

Breda will tell attendees what it was like to live in Kells Priory itself and what attracted people to a spiritual monastic life within a Priory.

Kells Priory was founded by the Canons Regular of St. Augustine in 1193 at the request of Norman Lord Geoffrey Fitz Roberts.
Four monks left a Priory in Cornwall and travelled to Kells to found what was later to became Irelands largest monastic enclosure.
