Description

The activities of the church in medieval Ireland were closely integrated with the surrounding population and landscape. Parish churches and their clergy were supported by the allocation of glebe land, as well as the collection of tithes derived from farming in the surrounding parish. In acts of lordly munificence, both Anglo-Norman and Gaelic-Irish lords endowed various religious orders with large agricultural estates. The management of such landscapes has bequeathed an archaeological, historical and toponymic legacy in the landscape which will be highlighted in this session.
