13k South of Kilkenny is the origin of this stone (Cooliagh Church) and Kells Priory nearby, is an enormous site, giving you a good idea of monastic life in the Middle Ages. A suggestion of a second figure on the South wall of St. Kieran’s Church, Kells is to be investigated but ivy and plaster make it difficult at the moment.
