Aghadoe, Killeagh, Co. Cork.
Not on Aghadoe Castle itself but rehoused on a dovecote at the farmhouse listed below. Print out instructions and map before you travel as local information is scarce.
This can be a pleasant location, particularly if the Sun comes out while you are there. As this sheela is surrounded by ivy, some gardening skills will be necessary to access the image, however it is made even more difficult by being above head height. Yet another unusual sheela in that it possesses some unique features.
This sheela has quite a pleasant face with unequal ears, lines on arms and legs and a full set of ribs decorated by four small breasts. The right arm passes behind the right leg to hold open a generous vulva.
And still we haven’t got to the unique features, which you will have to look for, carefully.
There are nodules on the outside of both wrists and the raised left arm is holding a comb-like? object which unfortunately I cannot identify.
