Fethard Wall

Fethard Watergate,Co. Tipperary


I think this one must have won the prize “Miss Ugly 1376” when  she was placed on this South-facing wall  to deter invaders from coming over the Watergate Bridge. Strangely enough, it can be difficult to make out the figure if the light is poor but when you see her, you will know what I’m talking about. A plaque has been erected underneath the sheela making it’s location easier to find.
