Also in the parish in the townland of Rossbrien is the site of St Dominic's
church. No remains of the church building exist today but it was probably
situated within the enclosure where the graveyard is still located.

According to Danaher, a convent under the patronage of Lord
Inchiquin was located in this area. Spellissy states that this land belonged
to the Augustinian nuns at one stage and it may be possible that the church
once located here was the church of that convent.
About a half a mile north east of the graveyard under some undergrowth,
there is a small section of wall about 10 foot long and 7 foot high that
is covered in ivy. This may also have been part of the convent that was
situated on these lands. From St Dominic's well it is easy to reach the
site. When you reach the well, turn in a north-easterly direction and
follow the roadway as far as it goes.
