The font from Culmullin church (ME043-017----) is now on the lawn of Culmullin House. It is octagonal (dim. c. 0.6m x. c. 0.5m) but the sides are of uneven length (L 0.18-0.29m), which creates an oval basin (int. dims 0.44m x 0.35m; max. D 0.2m) with a wave-like rim. The lower panels (H 0.32m) are set slightly back from the upper but are vertical, and there is a central drain-hole (total H 0.56m). (Roe 1968, 112-13)
