Castlecomer, Co. Kilkenny (2)

Yet more ignorance - we have no idea what the 'Coill Mhuire' referred to here is.  The shrine is located near an estate called Marymount, could that be it?

Lovely modern statue though.


  1. It may refer to this http://logainm.ie/Viewer.aspx?text=Cill+Mhuire&streets=yes

    Logainm is a great resource.

  2. Not sure if I'm getting the same results - for me it's bringing up 'Cill Muires' the nearest of which to Castlecomer are in Laois and southern Kilkenny.

    This inscription reads 'Coill Muire', Mary's Wood, and there's no result for that anywhere near Castlec. Mysterious....

    Do you think logainm would take requests?!
