Hore Abbey seen from the St. Patrick´s Rock (Rock of Cashel).

**************************
Hore Abbey (sometimes known as St.Mary's) is a ruined
Cistercian monastery near the Rock of Cashel, County
Tipperary, Republic of Ireland.

'Hore' is thought to derive from 'iubhair' – yew tree.
The former Benedictine abbey at Hore was given to the
Cistercians by Archbishop David MacCearbhaill (in
1270), who later entered the monastery. He endowed the
Abbey generously with land, mills and other benefices
previously belonging to the town. The story, beloved of
tour-guides, that he evicted the Benedictines after a
dream that they were about to kill him, is unlikely to
be true and probably arises from the Archbishop's
'interference' with the commerce of the city of Cashel.
His disfavour of the established orders in Cashel
certainly caused local resentment. He was resented by
some of the towns-people, being considered too much in
favour of the Irish by the more Anglicised. This is
evident in the objection by the thirty-eight local
brewers to the levy of two flagons out of every brewing
and in the murder of two monks who were visiting the town.
