In 2001 a sculpture representing the Cisctercian Monks was erected in Fermoy. This sculpture represents the history of the Cisctercian Monks who founded a monastery in Fermoy in 117O, and was known as The Abbey of Our Lady de Castro Dei. The central figure has the bible in his hands, the two outer figures are just 'empty' monk's habits. On the base if each statue is one of the three words forming the Irish name of the town: Mainistir Fhear Maí (= monastery of the Men of the Plain). The sculpture was crafted by Mick Davis.
