Little remained of the original abbey after repeated attacks by the Danes, who destroyed it in 824. It was restored by Saint Malachy in the 12th century, given to the Franciscans in 1469, and to the Augustinians a century later. It was finally dissolved under James I.
The present Tower of the Abbey dates back to the 14th century.
Sir James Hamilton repaired the church in 1617 and was buried in it when he died in 1644.
