Baile an Chaistil
County Antrim

Founded in the late 15th century, the Franciscan monastery Bonamargy Friary is located near the coastal town of Ballycastle. Within the extensive enclosure with two-storey entrance house lies the ruin of the church as well as several graves. One of these graves, a weathered round cross, is attributed to the “Black Nun”. Her last wish is said to have been to be buried here, so that all churchgoers would have to go over her grave. All kinds of legends entwine around the nun, ranging from prophecies to plagues.
