The church was the burial place of many important local people, one of whom Gormlaith O'Donnell wife of Domhnail O'Neill, she was interred here in 1353.

The Friary has the destination of being the longest in Franciscan Friary Ireland, at 49.8 Metres (163 Ft 4 ins). The site was excavated in the 1960's and not unsurprisingly traces of medieval occupation were found.
