dc.description.abstractJamb arch and hood moulding of eastern tomb of chancel. Moulding of jamb from intrados comprises: chamfer, roll, hollow, roll. The hood, from extrados inward comprises hollow, and roll (could be read as ogee). This moulding is fascinating, as it appears to be emulating a the double ogee found on similar tombs in of the Limerick/Kerry group - other design features of the tomb such as the finial, flanking pinnalces with bases and the shape of the arch suggest that this tomb is loosely connected to that group.en
