About Ardboe Abbey

Ardboe ‘Abbey’ is a small, featureless ruin in the field north of the graveyard, impossible to date. The ruined church in the graveyard (not in state care) lacks distinctive features but is probably of the early 17th century. At the west end of the graveyard are the earthwork remains of two spear-shaped bastions, surviving from an artillery fort, probably created here when Sir Arthur Chichester secured the west shore of Lough Neagh at the beginning of the 17th century.
