From King (1987, 302) Tomb-chest? c. 1690. Four fragments of a table tomb lie scattered around the older part of staholmock graveyard and a fifth is mounted on the north wall of the modern cemetery. This latter shows a male figure, naked except for a loin cloth, in the ‘orans’ position (Roe 1970, 213; Ní Shúilliobháin 1970, 222). Three other pieces are the remains of a panel with an elaborated achievement of arms, (Fleming impaling ?Cross or Chetwode), and the remaining piece is a support for a table tomb. The two decorated pieces probably formed the end panels of the tomb. Dimensions: H 0.62m; Wth 0.66m. Compiled by: Michael Moore Date of upload; 22 May, 2014 Amended: 7 August, 2014
