Kilconnell, County Galway


Jamb and arch moulding of tomb niche. Moulding, from intrados, comprises: hollow chamfer, right-angled rebate, hollow chamfer, right-angled rebate, hollow chamfer. The elements grow larger as the moulding progresses from the inner to the outer face. This, though a simple design feature, is unusual in Irish mouldings and is seen rarely. A similar graduation in size can be found in the jamb of the tomb niche in the north chancel wall at St. Mary Youghal.
