The altar tomb in the east section of the ruined church.


This beautiful altar tomb is decorated with a nice grave slab depicting a man and a woman, Lord Luke Dillon and his wife Jane Bathe. The grave is also locally known as The Jealous Man and Woman.
The sides of the altar tomb are decorated as well with fine carvings.
The remains of an old church surround it.
It is said that this place is a curative treatment for warts. The person who seeks help for this problem must stroke their wart with a pin or a needle and then place the pin or needle on the slab of the altar tomb. As the pin rusts away, the wart disappears.
It took us some time to find it. It's only 60 metres east from the Newtown Cathedral, but it's tucked away and hidden in the thick vegetation of the old graveyard. If it wasn't for a local man who was walking by, we'd have never found it.
