In 1890 a monastery was opened in these grounds and in 1911 the Church of the Holy Redeemer opened in the grounds and replaced the tin church.Clonard is also used as a music venue for many festivals in the city, most notably FĂ©ile an Phobail and holds an annual Novena which attracts over 100,000 tourists, Catholic and Protestant, from Ireland and Europe every year.The Northern Ireland peacemaker Father Alec Reid lived here.
