The Lord’s Walk, Abbeyleix, County Laois

Lord's Walk, Abbeyleix, County Laois

Just a short stroll from the main street in Abbeyleix, and accessed through iron gates, the Lord’s Walk will take you to the Church of Ireland. It’s a very short stroll and worth the trouble as the church is attractive in an austere way and there are some beautiful trees close by. 

The Lord’s referred to are the De Vesci’s and the walk is supposed to have been their route to the Church.

As you walk back towards the main street, watch out for the De Vesci memorial monument in the town.
