Description: South Dublin Village Walks - Tallaght Step 16: St. Mary's Priory. In 1855 the Dominicans, whose history in Ireland goes back to the mid 13th century, founded the Priory of St. Mary on the site of the medieval Castle of Tallaght. The Dominican Order, returning from Lisbon, purchased the lands and buildings from Mr Lentaigne in 1855. They lived in Tallaght House and the towerhouse, saying mass in a converted farm building attached to the towerhouse. In 1864 they opened the present priory building, adding extensions in 1901 and 1957. The oldest part of St Mary’s Priory was built in 1864. In the centre of the lawn to the left is a statue of St. Dominic with a dog at his feet.
