Architectural Fragments

Three fragments, from the Romanesque Church of Letter, are built into the west gable of St Luna's Roman Catholic, mid 19th century, church in Cadamstown. They include the stone head, pictured left, which was used as a corbel at Letter and the hood moulding, pictured below left, which features Hiberno-Romanesque decoration. During renovation works at St Luna's in 1977 , the Early Christian cross slab, pictured below was also revealed. The, poorly preserved, church at Letter stands in an old graveyard 1.5 kilometres south of here.
