This headstone was first recorded by Gary Dempsey during a project with artist Ruth Le Gear (Water Senses) looking at the legend of the Dobhar Chu in Conwall Graveyard Co. Leitrim and its connections to Glenade Lough.
The stone may be part of a pair that inspired the story of a water beast who murdered a woman by the shores of the lough. Her husband chaced the beast on horse back, before his horse was killed and he slay the water beast. A wonderful local folk legend from Leitrim and Donegal.
Conwall graveyard is part of an old church site between Manorhamilton (Co. Leitrim) and Bundoran Co. Donegal), and is will worth a vist to see these two stones.
