Kilconnell Franciscan Friary, north chancel wall, tomb niche, jamb, arch and hood


Kilconnell, County Galway


Jamb arch and hood moulding of eastern tomb of chancel. Moulding of jamb from intrados comprises: chamfer, roll, hollow, roll. The hood, from extrados inward comprises hollow, and roll (could be read as ogee). This moulding is fascinating, as it appears to be emulating a the double ogee found on similar tombs in of the Limerick/Kerry group - other design features of the tomb such as the finial, flanking pinnalces with bases and the shape of the arch suggest that this tomb is loosely connected to that group.
