Ballinderry Castle, Co. Galway
Complicated figure on this 16th century castle which is being restored. Figure is on a keystone above the main door and features a triskele, marigold, bird and rosette.
The sheela also seems to have plaited hair and a flow? between the legs. It’s also been suggested that this stone was originally painted.
You can see this tower from the Athenry Road but just as you get close you enter a forested section and you lose sight but a sign for a stables will guide you to the castle.
