Ballynagall Friary

From Fr. Thomas Walsh's History of the Irish Hierarchy:

Ballynegall 'town of the strangers' in the barony of Killmallock.

The family of Roche founded a monastery in this place for Dominican friars in the fourteenth century.

In the patent of Elizabeth and in the thirty ninth year of her reign it is expressly called a Carmelite friary. It was with a half carucate of land granted to the university of Dublin. Donoghe O'Dangane was the last prior, who was, in the reign of Philip and Mary, seized of the site of his monastery containing two acres and a church also a water mill and four acres of arable land with six in pasture in Ballynagall.
