St. Mary`s Abbey

Today all that remains of St. Mary's Abbey is the 40m high east wall of the tower known as the Yellow Steeple. The diocese of Trim was comparatively small and the Bishop of Trim often served as the Abbott of St. Mary's. The abbey had many incarnations over the centuries but the ruins today are from the abbey built in 1368 and operated by the Augustinian order.

Trim; Ireland`s first great church

Trim is famous as a Medieval town, it contains more Medieval buildings than any other town in Ireland. However, as with much of the Boyne Valley, the town's history predates this time period. Whilst St. Patrick was busy converting King Laoghaire, another one of his followers, Loman, had been ordered upstream to carry on with their work. He arrived at Trim, where the townscape would have contained none of today's impressive medieval ruins, and met with Feidlimid, son of King Laoghaire. Feidlimid immediately converted to Christianity and dedicated all of his territory to Patrick.
