The derelict house in Chapel Lane. The framed slab is up the wall, between the boarded up doorway and the walled up window, at 1.86 metres from the road level.


Chapel Lane is a short and narrow street in the medieval part of Fethard, one of the oldest laneways of the town and part of the boundaries in the 13th century. Up in the wall of a derelict small building, at 1.86 metres from the ground, and facing southeast (135°), is a slab framed into a moulding.

The measures of the slab within the frame are 34 centimetres of height and 29 centimetres of width, and there are different symbols carved on it.
On the top there is a framed inscription, probably a name, but it's hard to make it out. I only saw two letters, probably B.V.. In the middle there's another short inscription with a few letters clearly visible, the first one being a capital B, and a number 7 at the end.
In the lower part to the left there's an effigy of an ecclesiastic with his hands on the chest. He wears a miter with a big Greek cross on the top. On the bottom right is a human figure of a woman with a nice hairdo within a square moulded frame.
The bottom centre of the slab has an inscription that reads 1832.
