Later we drove from Knock to thee ancient Abbey at Ballintubber near Castlebar in County Mayo. This ancient Abbey dates back to 1216, long before Christopher Columbus sailed to the New World. It has a great history, including being burnt and desecrated by Cromwell, but it survived, and is known as the Abbey which refused to die.

This was another special day and one which i know we all enjoyed.
