MAUSOLEUM AT ST. FRANCIS’ CHURCH
The carvings on this highly decorated mausoleum show evidence of highly skilled craftsmanship, with some interesting naíve passages depicting human faces, which may be inspired by medieval carvings.
The inscriptions are not entirely legible, which make it difficult to date, but it was clearly dedicated to a high status individual. The carvings contain a number of references to the Resurrection, as well as a crucifix.
It forms part of an interesting ecclesiastical group in Meelick that includes the church, other ruined friary buildings, medieval grave slabs, and many other grave markers to the graveyard.
