Old Holy Water Font

Historic holy water sandstone font from chapel main door (men's door pre renovation) returns to rest at old altar in new graveyard thanks to Fr Graham PP who requested that it be placed there with reverance to it's history rather than see it dumped in a corner somewhere. Many people, including parishioners past and present, blessed themselves at this cherished noble and ancient font..

Historic holy water font originally at chapel door (men's)..

The Cross in the 'new'graveyard is modelled on the the design of the Cross of Clonoe Co Tyrone and on the Papal Cross Dublin..

Parishoners may notice some curious marks and a plate along the bottom edges of our Chapel.

Apparently these are called benchmarks and are to do with Ordnance Survey but are no longer in use. I will leave the reader to do the usual google searches for more info.

The first is at the entrance gate to the Chapel at the corner where apparently a stairway led to an underground store ( So I am told)


The second is a metal plate bearing the letters OS and BM with the number 3578. It is at the East side main altar corner near the distinctive Fr O'Kane grave at the roadside.

The parish does not have any info or history about when these were placed on the chapel.
