Parish Church, Dunleer, Co. Louth
The village of Dunleer is on the site of the Early Christian monastery of Lann Léire, associated with St. Brigid, founded by St. Forodran in the 6th or 7th century. The monastery was plundered by the Norsemen and others in the 10th and 12th centuries, being finally burnt in 1148. The Church of Ireland parish church and graveyard is down a lane off Main Street. Some early grave-slabs are preserved in the tower which dates to the 13th century. The rest of the church dates to 1830.
