Mardi Gras Monk

Bishop with a crozier
Corcomroe Abbey




I think he looks as if he's smiling...enjoying Fat Tuesday before the 40 days of Lent, perhaps?

He's found on the wall of the ruined Corcomroe Abbey where I visited in September last year. Look for him above the niche holding the effigy of King Conor O'Brien laid to rest here in 1267.
