This former Protestant church, now restored as a heritage centre, was once part of the Pre-Reformation burial ground and church site of Carrick Mor. The centre is situated on the main street of Carrick-on-suir in County Tipperary.
Its interesting gravestones include a memorial to Thomas Butler, who died in 1604, an illegitimate son of Thomas, tenth Earl of Ormonde. Buried here too is Dorothea Herbert, 1770-1829, daughter of the eighteenth century rector and author of 'Retrospections'. Many local artefacts and photographs are on display.
