Fountain of the North Monastery School

The fountain was erected by the De Vesci family in the middle of the 1800s to provide fresh water for the residents of Rathmoyle and the area known as 'The Tiles' on the Portlaoise Road.

It is made of limestone, and previously it had a metal grid surround and a handle to hold the buckets whilst filling the water. It was damaged whilst being removed to allow for road modifications in the 1980s.

The fountain may have lost some of its original features, but nonetheless it looks majestic in its present setting.
