Clones - Historic Town / Cluain Eois, Baile Scairi?il

Twelfth century representation of an early Christian Church. Carved from a single block of sandstone. Originally made to contain a relic possibly of Saint Tiernach. Carving on surface severely weathered.

Position of Sarcophagus probably in the area of the high Altar of the "Great Church of Clones" which was demolished during the Nine Years War.

More recently the tomb under Sarcophagus used as a burial place for McMahon and McDonald senior family members. Each family disputed others right to burial in this holy place.
