Anchoress Grave Slab Kilkenny

A late Medieval Grave slab of an anchoress,  a holy woman who was bricked into her cell and never left it. Read about them, and their male equivalents, anchorites, in my latest book, "Fadó Fadó More Tales of Lesser-Known Irish History".

The above grave slab is on view in St Canice's Cathedral, Kilkenny City.
