Likckmolassy Baptismal Font
Late medieval font
The Lickmolassy font consists of an upright late medieval freestanding font of probable fifteenth-century date. It has in more recent times been placed on a crudely built stone base and is preserved as a feature in Lickmolassy (also known as Churchill) graveyard. The way in which the base is carved is of interest. It has a series of four ogee headed openings at the base that resemble those found on some holy water stoups. The ogee-head is a feature that is also found on the Kilcarne and Rathmore fonts from Co. Meath (Roe 1968, 60, 97). Though its function on those fonts is as a ornamental frame for panels of figurative sculpture rather than as frame to an opening.
