According to tradition a monastery and bishopric were founded in Clogher circa 490 by St Macartan on the orders of St Patrick. In 1041, the church of Clogher was rebuilt, and dedicated to the memory of St Macartin. It was again rebuilt in 1295 by Matthew M’Catasaid, Bishop of Clogher, but burnt to the ground on 20 April 1396 along with two chapels, the abbey, the court of the bishops, and 32 other buildings with all their contents. In 1610 the abbey and its revenues were confiscated by King James I and given to the Diocese of Clogher. The present building was erected on the site in 1744.
