1640s[edit]

Currently the article says "As part of the Tudor suppression of Irish Monasteries at the end of the 16th century, the Augustinians were driven out of Adare and had moved to Limerick City by 1633." Yet the Dictionary of National Biography Volume XVI, page 320–327 says "A detachment crossed the Shannon, and Bunratty was burned by its garrison, though it had taken the confederate Catholics much pains to win. 'We stormed and burned the abbey of Adare, held by the rebels, where four friars were burned and three took prisoners'(Rushworth, vii. 788.)." which suggests that in 1646 there were some friars in residence at the Abby over one hundred years the Tudor suppression of Irish Monasteries. I suggest that the article needs verification. --PBS (talk) 18:08, 14 August 2009 (UTC)


Merge Suggestion[edit]

I think that information from St Nicholas' National School should be incorporated into this article. The school itself is probably not notable enough for its own article, but if included in this article, it would convey information about the modern usage of the friary, which is absent from this article.
