dc.description'An engraving based on this drawing found in Vol. I of Francis Grose's Antiquities of Ireland (London, 1791) as Pl. 34 without the mother and child in the foreground. The original sketch was done on July 28th, 1779, when Bigari was on a tour of Connacht with his artist friend, Gabriel Beranger (ca. 1730-1817), who made a note of this visit in his catalogue notes (see NLI Ms 4162, page 23). This drawing depicts a view from the south of the Augustinian 15th century priory in the town of Dunmore, County Galway, Ireland. The western end of the abbey is shown roofless, while the eastern end has been roofed. In the foreground are four adults and one child walking in the grounds of the abbey.'en
