Ireland: Co. Louth, Mellifont Abbey 5

As I've said before, there was a segregation of the community of brothers. This only ended under The Second Vatican Council, in the 1960's during the Second Vatican Council and Pope John XXIII.
The photos show:
1. At the far left, the west wall are the ruins of the cellars, store rooms and the lay brothers quarters.
2. Next photo on the east side, were the quarters for the choir monks.
