Clane (Co. Kildare) / Claonadh
The site is in the graveyard on the Naas road, just after leaving the village.
Remains: large sections of the church and transept walls; damaged effigy of a knight.
The effigy is said to be that of Gerald FitzMaurice FitzGerald, who is reputed to have founded the friary in 1258. Having undergone major re-building in 1433, the friary was suppressed in 1540 and a lot of the stone used in the repair of Maynooth castle. The friars never really returned to the area, except for a couple of years after 1647, and there are very few records of friars engaged in parish work in the region.
