Aghaboe is a hamlet in County Laois, Ireland. It is located on the R434 regional road in the rural hinterland west of the town of Abbeyleix.It contains the ruins of the Abbey of Aghaboe which was founded by St. Canice in Ossory in the 6th century and, beside it, the Church of Ireland church of St. Canice. At some point before the Norman invasion of Ireland, Aghaboe Abbey succeeded Seirkieran as the principle episcopal seat in the Diocese of Ossory and in time, itself came to be succeeded by St. Canice's Cathedral in Kilkenny city, founded by the same saint. Aghaboe is famous as being the first seat of St. Feargal, bishop of Ossory, and who later traveled through Francia and became bishop of Salzburg, Austria.
