Clonfert has been used continuously for burial and prayer from St Brendan the Navigator's time
to the present day. St Brendan's Cathedral, both internal and external, contains 12th, 13th,
15th and 16th century architecture. St Brendan is buried here where he founded a monastery in
the 584. In later times, 16th century,  about 3,000 lived inthe area.>Art and architecture are a
feature of this sacred site. In the nearby Roman Catholic Parish Church is the statue of Our
Lady of Clonfert to whom there is a signicicant local/regional devotion especially in the month
of May, when it is difficult to find space at evening devotions.
