MORE NASH'S! Askeaton Abbey


The Naish vault in Askeaton Abbey refers to the Naish family of Ballycullen, Askeaton, County Limerick,Ireland. They were very large landowners in the area. The huge vault bears the inscription," In this ruined chapter room, the ancient and exclusive burial place of this family, this tomb was erected by Carroll Naish of Ballycullen Esq.& CO." The tomb commemorate's his wife who died in 1836. Her name was, Mary Sampson Naish.They had a daughter named Caroline Chr. 16/5/1832. Carroll Naish remarried after his wife's death to Ann Margaret O'Carroll. Their children were:
Secilia 1843
John 1841
Richard 1845
Frederick 1847

The Askeaton Abbey was founded in 1389 by the Fourth Earl of Desmond for the Conventual Franciscans. It was improved and enlarged by the 15th century and most of the surviving ruins date from then. In 1579, Sir Nicholas Malby sacked and burned the Abbey, killing many monks. The Franciscans returned in 1627 and restored the Abbey in 1643. The Abbey provides one of the finest examples of the ecclesiastical architecture of its period, the cloisters and the east windows being particularly notable and remarkably well preserved. The whole building is enclosed by a thick stone wall and down through the centuries burials have taken place within the Abbey and in the surrounding yard. Maybe Naish/Nash burials?
