Dowth Church, Co. Meath
A sign for the John Boyle O’Reilly Memorial is all that indicates the location of the Castle and church. The South wall was covered in ivy but has been cleaned-up. Well done locals!
Found the elusive sheela after 50 years, it is behind the O’Reilly monument (erect.1903) and behind the figure with sword and dog but very badly worn and damaged. I wouldn’t recognize it but for the sketch below which I brought with me and proved invaluable as the damage is very severe.
