About 7 miles beyond the Boot Inn there is a place called Grace Adieu. Years ago there used to be a nun’s convent there, Cromwell drove the nuns out of it and when the nuns were going out they cried out “Grace Adieu”. To this day the place is known as Grace Adieu.
This story was told by my mother Elizabeth Fields Coultry Cloghran Co Dublin.
