Fermoy Abbey Fermoy Abbey Founded in 1114 by Cistercian Monks, it was called Castrum Dei de Maria, Mary of the Stronghold of God. The abbey was cruciform in shape. The site of the actual building ran east west from, what is now Abbey Lane to Waterloo Lane. It was bounded on the north by the river Blackwater and on the south by what is now McCurtain Street. The grave yard was in the area now bounded by the block on the north east by Hanley's Newsagents and the south west by Charlie's Bar. Fermoy's weir was not these at the time so the level of the Blackwater was much lower that what is is now. There was ford across the river at a point were the lane runs from Grange to the a point across the Blackwater at the island at the end or Barnane. There was a weir west of this ford which catered for a mill race between the island and Barnane. The monks farmed their lands is what is now Grange and also around the monestary, It is believed that their lands consisted of about 1,100 acres.
