Tour of the graveyard of St. Flannan's Cathedral, Killaloe

"St. Flannan's Cathedral has been in continuous use since it was built c. 1200. Among its many fine features is the imposing east window. Donal Mór O'Brien erected the first cathedral which was destroyed by Cathal Carrach of Connaught in 1185. At the time of the Reformation the cathedral became a Protestant one and its first Protestant bishop appointed in 1570 was Murtogh O' Brien-Arra. He ruled his diocese for thirty-six years and died in 1613. The tower was increased in height in the late 18th century and was again altered in 1892 when a peal of bells was installed." Quoted from Discover Killaloe.
