Drum Heritage Centre, Holy Well and Graveyard
Drum Heritage Centre has a large display area containing one of the largest collections in the midlands of historic documents relating to Drum and the local area, including Mass Display paths. There is also a large collection of the literary works of Tadgh O' Neachtain including those of his son Sean, the papers of the old Gaelic family, the Naughten's, a display of all local families in the 1911 census and the Boston Pilot papers. There is a fine example of Holy Well adjacent to the Monastic Site which stands on an embankment within the Monastic enclosure. Known to locals as "The Monastery", the Abbey appears to have been the place of worship for a Community of Patrician Monks whose living quarters are located to the rear of the Abbey building. The Monastic site also contains the ruins of a Medieval Church and the remains of at least four small buildings believed to have been one-time solitary penitent places of prayer, in addition to three hundred and fifty well maintained memorials to the dead. Entry is free. Toilets in the Centre.
