2. Finally refounded circa 1080. Cluniac. Exposed foundations indicate much of the original ground plan. Of the C13 Church there remain fragments of the west front, three west bays of the south nave aisle with intact chamber above, three bays of north transept and a substantial piece of the south transept and an important work. The east claustral range retains a vaulted chamber, the three-arched entrance to the chapter house, roofless, with excellent late C12 arcading, and building to south-east forming part of Priory House. The south range has fragments of the frater and a fine doorway. The cloister garth contains remains of an octagonal lavatorium, late C12, similar to that at Mellifont. A.M.
