Early Irish monastery discovery "beyond wildest dreams"

Archaeologists are excited by the discovery of an early medieval monastery in Carrowmore, Co Donegal, Ireland. The site was previously known as an early Christian settlement, but the discovery of a circular boundary wall leads experts to believe that a monastery was located there.

"For the first time, we can see the precinct boundaries of a monastery at Carrowmore," said archaeologist and group co-leader, Colm O'Brien.
