Monk's Fishing House
Fish was a staple in the diet of the mediaeval monastery, and this small building, probably built in the 15th or 16th century, is believed to have been used by the monks of Cong to make the task of catching fish a little easier.

It is built on a platform of stones over a small arch water from the river to flow underneath the floor. A trapdoor in the floor may have been used for a net, and monks could sit by the small fireplace in cold weather waiting for their catch. It is said that a line was connected from the fishing house to a bell in the monastery kitchen to let the cook know that there was fresh fish available.

Teach Iascaigh na Manach
Bh? ?isc mar bhun?bhar bia sna mainistreacha sa Mhe?naois, agus meastar gur mar ch?namh do mhanaigh Chonga chun breith ar na h?isc a t?gadh an foirgneamh beag seo sa 15? n? sa 16? haois.

T?gadh ? ar ard?n cloch a bh? suite os cionn ?irse bhig a ligeann d'uisce na habhann rith faoin url?r. B'fh?idir gur ?ideadh an chomhla th?g?la san url?r chun l?on a scaoileadh anuas, agus nuair a bh?odh aimsir fhuar ann d'fh?adfadh na manaigh su? isteach cois tine agus iad ag feitheamh go mb?arfaid ar iasc. Deirtear go raibh t?ad ag gabh?il ?n teach iascaigh go dt? cloig?n istigh i gcistin na mainistreach ionas go mbeadh a fhios ag an gc?caire go raibh ?asc ?r ar f?il.
