The old octagonal baptismal font at the entrance of the graveyard.


The graveyard at Kilmainhamwood is associated with a preceptory of the Knights Hospitallers.
Nothing of this structure survives today, but in the graveyard there are a few interesting items.

The one that stands out the most is a holed cross slab. The slab is 1.05 metres tall and 39 centimetres wide. At 81 centimetres from the ground there's a rectangular hole measuring 13 centimetres of width and 11 centimetres of height. The east face of the slab is decorated with a ringed Latin cross in relief.

There are two other nice grave markers.
One is a vertical slab, 54 centimetres tall and 19 centimetres wide, with a rectangle measuring 16 centimetres of width and 19 centimetres of height, crossed by two diagonals.
Below the rectangle there's the date 1788. Within the rectangle, in its lowest part, there are some letters, but I couldn't make them out.
The other grave marker is a triangular stone 54 centimetres tall and 38 centimetres wide at the base, with an incised ringed cross with a circle of 29 centimetres of diameter on the vertical axis and 26 centimetres on the horizontal axis.

There's also a grave slab flat on the ground with two effigies in relief, a man on the left and a woman on the right. Above them there's an angel's head. There isn't any visible inscription. The slab measures 2.03 metres in length and 1.03 metres in width.

An old octagonal baptismal font can be found at the entrance of the graveyard.
