St. Mary's Abbey remains in Trim ๐Ÿ’ฃ๐Ÿ’ฃ๐Ÿ’ฃ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ☘️☘️☘️

The diocese of Trim was comparatively small and the Bishop of Trim often served as the Abbott of St. Mary's. The abbey had many incarnations over the centuries but the ruins today are from the abbey built in 1368 and operated by the Augustinian order. Just north-west of the St Mary’s Abbey building is the 40m Yellow Steeple, of Trim Castle in Trim, Meath. It takes its name from the colour of the stonework at dusk.Once the bell tower of the abbey, dating from 1368 but destroyed by Oliver Cromwell’s soldiers in 1649. Cromwell met the Irish soldiers coming from Trim at a hill and he drove the Irish back. After some years the hill was been dug up and they found many human bones. It was called Cromwell's hill.
