Lavey Church, Co. Cavan


Easy enough to find this church on the N3 between Virginia and Cavan. The sheela was removed from here in 1842 and can be seen in the Cavan County Museum, Ballyjamesduff.

What may have been the original church can be seen sinking into the ground by looking over the wall.

This excellent sheela is housed in Cavan Co. Museum along with the Cavan figure.

Ballyjamesduff is just off the Dublin to Cavan road. After Virginia look for a signpost.
