The font from Loughbrackan church (ME006-028----) is now outside the Roman Catholic church at Drumcondra. It is a circular block of sandstone (ext. diam. 0.55m; H 0.33m) with a flat-bottomed basin (int. diam. 0.43m; D 0.16-0.19m). Three lugs (max. Wth 9cm; L 21cm; H 5cm) of an original four survive, and about a quarter of the basin wall is missing. Two small holes on the rim at opposite points provided a fastening for the cover. The above description is derived from the published 'Archaeological Inventory of County Meath' (Dublin: Stationery Office, 1987). In certain instances the entries have been revised and updated in the light of recent research. Compiled by: Michael Moore Date of upload/revision: 6 May 2015
