Title

St. Mary's Augustinian Priory, Devenish Island, south west angle of tower, door jamb and arch

Location

Devenish Island, County Fermanagh

Description

Doorway under tower, moulding comprises from intrados: hollow chamfer, hollow chamfer, hollow chamfer. The workmanship here is very fine and the stone has held its surface dressing. This door is almost identical in moulding and quality to the south west door of the nave in Holycross Abbey, Co. Tipperary. This, like the chancel door, suggests the involvement of Tipperary/Kilkenny masons.
