Description: One of the most valued possessions of the Dominicans of Tallaght is an old banner or pennant which dates from the time of the Confederation of Kilkenny.This bears the image of the Blessed Virgin enclosed by a rosary beads.It was not one of the regimental banners which were listed and described by Luke Wadding in 1643,but probably belonged to the Black Abbey,the Dominican house in Kilkenny.It was found over a century ago,said to have been hidden in a chimney in Kilkenny,and given to Father Meehan who handed it over to the Dominicans of Kilkenny.It was brought to Tallaght about 1870 and has remained there ever since,except for a brief return to Kilkenny in 1930 for the occasion of the visit of the Papal Nuncio,Rev.Paschal Robinson,OFM,and another short adjourn in Cavan for the Owen Roe O'Neill commemoration.
