In the 7th century, St Alban chose the Glen of Aherlow region as the location for a monastery. The site, known as Toureen Peakaun, features the ruins of a rectangular 12th century AD church. Of note are the cross-slab fragments in the wall and remains of crosses between the church and gate.
Today, pilgrims continue to visit the church and the nearby holy well.
