Calvary - Cnoc Chailvaire

In the landscaped gardens around the Abbey and situated in the Abbey grounds is The Rosary Way and the Way of The Cross. Calvary is at the highest point on the hill overlooking The Abbey.

The three crosses erected to the rear of the waterfall creates a magnificent impression of the hill of Calvary.

Each year in Holy Week The Passion of Jesus is re-enacted here before thousands of people. It is always a moving experience and a great preparation for Easter.

The Passion Play has been in existence for 13years under the direction of Fr. Frank Fahey, The attendance appears to get bigger and bigger with patrons travelling from the four corners of Ireland the UK and The Continent.
