In the graveyard on Slane Hill (ME019-060016-) there is a slab-shrine (ME019-060005-) S of the church tower. Just E of this is the graveslab of W. Kenwan, which is coffin-shaped (Wth 0.52-0.68; L c. 2m) and has an incised cross with fleur-de-lis terminals and a three-step Calvary at the foot. The name is carved at the foot, and a chalice beneath the arms may indicate that he was a priest (Westropp 1901, 418-9; FitzGerald 1915; Bradley and King 1985, 146). It could not be identified in 2014. Compiled by: Michael Moore Date of upload: 16 June, 2014
