Founded by Roscrea in 1946; raised to the rank of abbey 20 November 1947

Pais

1945: The abbot of Roscrea visited Scotland to look for a place in which to revive monastic life in this country, and chose the old manor of Nunraw

1946: Negotiations proceeded rapidly.  7 founders from Roscrea took possession of the manor on 7 February and celebrated the first Mass.  A little later, a second group arrived, which brought the number of monks to 26.  The community lived in the manor house and in temporary shelters.  The permanent monastery was being built a short distance away.

1952: Construction of the monastery buildings begins.  The cornerstone of the church was laid on 22 August 1954.

1962, 31 October: the community moves into the monastery.
