Inside the church on the site of the parish church of Tara (ME031-033071-) is a plain octagonal sandstone font (ext. dim. 0.58m) with the damaged wall of its circular basin (int. diam. 0.44m; present D 0.13m) and chamfered under-panels (surviving H 0.32m). It is resting on a modern pyramidal base, and Roe (1968, 128) has detected incised letters that might be a crude IHS inscription on an upper panel that is secondary.
