There are three seventeenth-century grave-slabs within the ruined remains of Lickmolassy medieval parish church. Lickmolassy is also referred to as Church Hill. It equates in medieval terms to the modern parish of Portumna. This grave-slab bears a cross with Fleur de Lis terminals and a form of simple Calvary base. The cross head has an open lozenge in the centre containing a small IHS monogram with a diminutive cross springing from the cross-bar of the H. The inscription is in Latin and is carved in relief.  The date is missing so was probably originally carved on one of the broken corners. The inscription is carved on the base and up along the left side of the slab.

The base reads: ———— EN

—————————-  IA * PRE

———————- –  (I)ANNIS OF

———————– (P)ATRIS DICTI

———————- TDONA TIO H

Side Reads: (H)UNCT I PATRIS DICTI ROGERI QVI MORTVVS

FUIT TYRYHANE PRE DICTA 25
