The Nun’s Chapel

This Chapel was built as part of the original church with the intention of serving the community of nuns residing in the convent beside the church. The nuns would enter through the side door into the chapel and be effectively cloistered behind huge metal grilles during Mass and services. The Presentation nuns resided in Cahersiveen from 1840 until 2010 although the community had ceased to use the chapel exclusively from the 1990s, nuns preferring to be part of the general congregation from then on.
